Todays cards bring us up to card #955. I'm slowly making a little headway, and I'm sure it will be alot easier once I have templates to all 26 teams done again, but for now it's make them as I need them. Card #950 was Rick Dempsey, a longtime catcher, who was one of 3 players to play in the '60's, '70's, '80's, and '90's (Carlton Fisk and Nolan Ryan were the others). I feel pretty old because probably in the next few years, we will see the last player to play in the '90's retire, and I got into baseball in the early '90's, so it's like part of my childhood will be gone. I wish players played for 25 years like some of them did decades ago.
I have a few players coming up that it will be interesting finding pictures for (Josias Manzanillo-Boston, Scott Lusader-Yankees, Denny Walling-Rangers, Nelson Liriano-Royals, and Mauro "Goose" Gozzo-Indians). I believe Walling will have a Mothers Cookies card, Lusader might have a few Yankees card, and Manzanillo might have made it in the '92 Topps Debut set, but the others might be tricky. As you can see, the Bill Long card needed a bunch of changes, and I did the best I could. Thanks for checking out the latest cards. Next ones should be up next week sometime.
