1992 Topps #872 Jamie Moyer

Jamie played in MLB for 25 seasons. He came up all the way back in 1986 with the Cubs, and played with them through 1988. He spent 1989 and 1990 with the Rangers, and 1991 with the Cardinals. After spending 1992 in the minors, he played with the Baltimore Orioles from 1993-1995. He spent the first part of 1996 with the Red Sox, and then got traded to the Seattle Mariners, whom he pitched with for the next decade until the middle of the 2006 season. He was traded to the Phillies that year, and stayed with them through 2010, winning a World Series title in 2008 with them. He missed the entire 2011 season with an injury, and spend his last season with the Rockies in 2012 before retiring.

He got his first Topps card in the 1987 set, and appeared in the next 4 sets. He missed the 1992 set, but was back for 1994 and 1995. He was left off of the 1996 set, and then appeared in the regular Topps set from 1997-2009. He got a card in the Update set in 2010, and was back in the regular set for 2011. Even though he didn't pitch in 2011, he got a card in the 2012 Update set (2 in fact, as one was a season highlight checklist). The '12 Update cards would be his last 2 Topps cards, since he was left off of the 2013 set. So for pitching in 25 years, that's not to bad, only left off of 3 sets. This 1992 Topps custom checks 1 off of the list, only leaving his 1996 and 2013 cards to give him a complete Topps run.

It was pretty tough to find picture of Moyer in a Cards uniform, and I had to steal this one from his '91 Stadium Club card. This card was one of the few cards I had to make with the League Leader designation on the back since he led the NL in Earned Runs in 1987. 

Thanks for checking out my latest card.
