Tito Fuentes (1971)

While my newsworthy early break of 2009 Topps Series brought in the readers, I can't resist blogging about Tito. Here is the 1971 installment of Fuentes on cardboard:

Still bunted AND still unhappy about it. His position is listed as INFIELD. Tito played 2B, SS and 3B in 1970 with at least 24 games at each position.

STATS-ON-THE-BACK!!!!!!!!
1. 1971 Topps has lame backs. No cartoon,a dark B%W photo, weak player info, and only 2 lines of stats. TWO LINES OF STATS. It almost makes me cry, but Tito would not like that.
2. Switch Hitter. Should have found that info in 1970 but the there was so much ststy goodness on that card. FYI - His 1967 card listed him as a right-handed batter only. Not sure when he started hitting from both sides.
3. I got nothing else for you.

1972 promises to be a step up for one reason, Double the Tito!
