1969 Carlton Fisk

"In '69 I was twenty-one and I called the road my own"-  Running on Empty (Jackson Browne)

 Carlton Fisk made his major league debut on September 18, 1969 at the age of twenty-one, just two years after being the fourth overall pick in the January phase of the amateur draft. Pudge wouldn't make his cardboard debut until 1972, when he appeared on a Topps card with two other Red Sox rookies (Mike Garman and Cecil Cooper). So in honor of #27 (or, 72-depending on which team you're a fan of), I've done a 'pre-rookie' card.
