Johnny Bench is an American former professional baseball player who is widely regarded as one of the greatest catchers in the history of Major League Baseball (MLB). Born in 1947, Bench spent his entire 17-year career with the Cincinnati Reds. Known for his exceptional defensive skills, powerful arm, and ability to handle pitchers, Bench revolutionized the catcher position. He was a key component of the Reds’ success in the 1970s, winning two World Series championships in 1975 and 1976. Bench’s offensive prowess was equally impressive, as he hit over 300 home runs and amassed over 2,000 career hits. Throughout his career, he earned numerous accolades, including 10 Gold Glove Awards and two National League Most Valuable Player (MVP) Awards. Bench was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1989. This lot is a Johnny Bench All-Star baseball card #260 produced by Topps in 1975.
