1992 Topps #896 Dave Hansen

Dave Hansen played in the Majors from 1990-2005. He made it back to the Bigs as a coach in 2011, and he is still coaching as of 2017. Dave played for the Dodgers from 1990-1996, played for the Cubs in 1997, spent 1998 in Japan, came back to the Dodgers from 1999-2002. He played for the Padres from 2003 through mid-season of 2004, and spent the rest of 2004 and all of 2005 with the Seattle Mariners, retiring after the season. He set a Major League record with 7 pinch-hit Home Runs in 2000. In 2011, Dave started his coaching career with the Dodgers. He stayed with them through the end of the 2012 season. He spent 2013 with the Seattle Mariners, and has been with the Angels from 2014 through the present.

Dave only appeared in 4 Topps sets, 1993, 1994, 1995, and 2001. He is missing cards from the 1991, 1996-2000, and 2002-2006 Topps sets. This 1992 Topps custom covers his 2nd Topps card. For his coaching career, Dave is missing cards from the 2012-2017 Topps sets.

I have the longer version on my other blog, so here is the short version of what I've been up to. Ordered a bunch of cards online, will post about them when I get them all. My boss has been giving me a bunch of junk wax cards. The 1995 Topps custom checklist is almost done. Things are busy at home, but blogging, customs, and real cards keep me sane sometimes. Thanks for checking out my latest post.
