1992 Topps Luis Alicea

Luis Alicea played in the Majors from 1988-2002. He came up in '88 with the Cardinals, spent '89 and '90 in the minors, and then made it back to St. Louis from 1991-1994. He played with the Red Sox in 1995, came back to the Cardinals in 1996, and played for the Angels in 1997. He suited up for the Rangers from 1998-2000 and finished his career with 2 seasons in Kansas City. After he retired, he made it back to the Majors and a 1st base coach with the Red Sox from 2007-2008, winning a World Series ring in 2007, and then with the Mets in 2009.

Luis appeared on number of Topps sets during his career, the first being the '88 Traded set. He got into the next years' set, was in the minors for 2 years, and was left out of the '92 set. He got into the '93, '94, '95, and '96 sets, before being left off of the 1997 set. He was back in the '98 set, missed the '99 and '00 sets, and got his final Topps appearance in the 2001 set with the Rangers. He only needs 4 cards to complete his career Topps run with the '92 that I made, and there are pictures of him, so I may finish them in the future.

This was a pretty standard card to make. Don't remember where I got the photo, but I believe it was from another card.

Thanks for checking out my latest card.
