1992 Topps Mark Davidson

Mark Davidson played in the Major Leagues from 1986-1991. He recieved Topps cards from 1988-1991, missing only the 1987 and 1992 sets. He was nothing more than a reserve outfielder, but he can say something that not many MLBers can say as he is a World Series champion, playing on the 1987 Minnesota Twins club. 

I started really trading baseball cards with friends in 1991 with friends at school in the 2nd grade, and Mark Davidson will always have a special place in my heart since his 1991 Fleer card was one of the first cards I remember getting in a trade. I don't know why, but for some reason I thought he was a superstar and wanted to get his card. Guess I was never much of a prospector, even back then.

This card was Mark's Sunset Card, and is the first of 2 Astros in a row in the set (Tony Eusebio is the second). It's a pretty standard card (not sure where I got the photo from), almost the kind of photo you would expect to see on a '92 Topps card.

Thanks for checking out my latest work.

1992 Topps Mike Dalton

Mike only got into 1 season in the Majors, 1991, pitching 4 games for the Tigers. I own 1 of the 3 cards from Major sets that he appeared on in 1992 ('92 Fleer). He also got a '92 Topps Debut card and a 1992 Score 100 Rising Stars card.

He was understandable left off of the 1992 Topps set since he only played in 4 games in 1991. I was surprised that Score didn't include him in their regular set, but Fleer did. Dalton put up some good numbers in the Minors so it's surprising that he didn't see at least a little more time in the Bigs or make it up in 1990 with the Red Sox.

This card was pretty easy to make. I had to steal the picture from his '92 Score 100 Rising Stars cards, since he didn't have any non-card photos in a Tigers uniform.

Thanks for checking out the latest card in the set.

1992 Topps Steve Wapnick

Steve Wapnick's Major League career consisted of 2 seasons, 1990 and 1991. He had a few various cards from Topps companies, but none in regular Topps sets. He had a 1990 Bowman card, a 1991 Topps Debut card, and a 1992 Stadium Club card. He had 2 cards in 1992 from other sets, a '92 Donruss card, and a 1992 Score card. It seems like if a player only played a few games in 1991, that he will be missing from most sets in 1992, but Score will usually get him in their 1992 set. 

Steve only pitched in 6 games in 1991, so that is probably why he was left off of the '92 Topps set. His Minor League stats say that he could've been a valuable closer or setup man, but perhaps the Big League hitters thought otherwise. Thanks for checking out my latest card.

1992 Topps Rick Parker

Rick Parker was a journeyman Outfielder during the '90's. He came up with the Giants in 1990 and was with the in 1991. He played in the Minors in 1992, but got some action with the Astros in 1993. In '94 he played for the Mets, and in '95 and '96, he played with the Dodgers, his final 2 seasons in the Big Leagues.

As for Parker Topps cards, he got into the '90 Traded set, and the 1991 flagship issue. Other Topps cards included the 1991 Debut set, a 1992 Stadium Club card, and a 1993 Team Stadium Club card.
He was left off of the 1992 set probably because he only had 13 games in 1991.

Sometime in the near future, I will be putting a link (and perhaps a slideshow if my laptop will let me) to the photos of the entire set. Thanks for checking out the latest card in my set.

The 1992 Topps set is complete and here's proof

Well, I finally did it. I made a card for every player and coach who was left off of the 1992 Topps set. I hope this page loads quickly for everyone. Below is a picture of every card, front and back in numerical order. Thanks for checking it out!
