1992 Topps #890 Tony Bernazard

Tony Bernazard played in the Major Leagues from 1979-1991. He came up in 1979 with the Expos, and played with them in 1980. He was with the White Sox from 1981 through the middle of 1983, when he was acquired by the Mariners. He spent 1984 through the middle of 1987 with the Indians, and then was acquired by the A's. He played in Japan from 1988-1990, then came back in 1991 for 6 games with the Tigers.

Tony first appeared in a Topps set in 1980, when he appeared on a 3-player rookie card with Randy Miller and John Tamargo. He got into both the 1981 regular and Traded sets. He got a regular 1982 card, and a regular and Traded 1983 card. He was in both the regular and Traded sets again in 1984, and then got into the regular Topps set in 1985 and 1986. For 1987, Tony got a regular issue, and an All-Star cad, as he put up his best numbers in 1986. He get his last Topps card in 1988. This 1992 Topps custom finished Tony's career Topps run, although he could probably be given a card in the 1991 Traded set.

I am currently working on templates for the 1994 Topps set, and if all goes well, I may have those, as well as the 1998 templates done by late tomorrow. I have a feeling that I will have pages up for the 1989-2001 sets up any day now on my other blog. Thanks for checking out my latest post.

1992 Topps #889 Pat Rice

Pat Rice played 1 season in the Majors, in 1991 with the Mariners. He went 1-1, with a solid 3.00 ERA. After his playing career, he was a coach for a few different organizations.

Pat only got 3 major issue cards during his career, which were a 1992 Fleer, Score, and Topps Debut issue. This 1992 Topps custom completes his career Topps run, and would've been Pat's only Topps card.

If you haven't seen it, Greg from Night Owl Cards did a post on the '92 Topps customs I sent him. I'm hoping to print out the rest of the '92 set, and as soon as I finish these crazy templates, complete some more Topps sets. Only parts of the 1994, 1998 sets, the whole 1995 set, and some touch ups on the 1997 set are left, and the 1989, 1990, 1991, 1993, and 2001 checklists are done. Some cool things will be coming up soon. Thanks for checking out my latest post.
