1981 Topps Larry Bowa

The front: Bowa was usually clean-shaven during his long MLB career; there are only a couple of cards with him having a mustache.

The back: Bowa held several shortstop fielding records during his career and remains the all-time NL leader in fielding percentage.
The player: In addition to his excellent glove Bowa had a solid bat. He led the NL in triples in 1971 and hit .375 in the 1980 World Series. Overall, in 2,247 games he hit .260 with 15 HR, 525 RBI and 318 SB.

The man: Bowa has been a coach for several teams and had managerial stints with the Padres and Phillies. He is currently Senior Advisor to the Phillies General Manager.

My collection: I have 29 of his cards, from 1971 to 1985. I would be interested in trading for 1970 Topps #539.
