Autos From Max Part 2 - George Foster

Max picked up another auto for me while he was at his show in Chicago, George Foster.  I paid for this one, which was $25.00, I think.  I also raided my 1972 Topps set for this card, but I was glad to get it signed.

Foster (b. 1948) played in the majors from 1969 to 1986 for the Giants, Reds, Mets and White Sox.  He had 1,925 hits, 348 home runs and a .274 batting average.  He won the NL MVP Award in 1977, the season in which he hit 52 home runs.  He was also a 5-time All Star (1976 to 1979 and 1981) and won the World Series with the Reds in 1975 and 1976.

Foster appeared on the Hall of Fame ballot four times, but was only able to receive as much as 6.9% of the vote.
