1992 Topps #886 Mark Huismann

Mark Huismann pitched for 9 seasons in the Majors. He came up to the Bigs in 1983 with the Royals and played with them until the middle of 1986 when the Mariners acquired him. He was on the 1985 World Series winning club with KC in '85. He split 1987 with the Mariners and Indians. The Tigers signed him for 1988, and he played with the Orioles in 1989. He spent his final 2 years in the Majors with the Pirates in 1990 and 1991.

Mark only appears in 2 Topps sets, 1985 and 1987. He is missing a bunch of cards, which are from 1984, 1986, and 1988-1991. This 1992 Topps custom is Marks final Topps card. I couldn't find a color photo of Mark in a Pirates uni, so I had to take this black and white one and colorize it. I didn't get the greens the fright color, and I think if I can find a better photo, I will definitely update this one.

I finished the final checklist to the 1989 Topps set on my other blog. Here is a link to the checklist. I'll give the set it's own page at some point with the checklist and all of the templates soon. I probably won't get to working on cards right yet, choosing rather to work on templates and checklists for the 1990-2000 Topps sets. I have a few readers helping me make some of the cards and get checklists going, so if you think you could help with anything, feel free to email me at karensjer at gmail dot com. Thanks for checking out the latest '92 custom.
