#166 Destruction Crew

Now here is a special card that Topps got right. Three terrific players wearing smiles and classic Cleveland Indian uniforms, politically incorrect Chief Wahoo head and all.

At the time it was issued the card represented a Rookie of the Year runner-up and 3rd place MVP vote getter (Colovito), a two time All Star and Gold Glove winner (Power) and a seven time All Star and MVP runner-up (Doby).

Of course Rocky Colavito and Vic Power went on to accumulate quite a bit more hardware and Larry Doby is a Hall of Famer. One of the coolest cards in the set I'd say.
