1992 Topps #910 Dave Rohde

Dave Rohde played for 3 years in the Majors. He came up in 1990 with the Houston Astros, played with them in 1991, and spent one final year in the Bigs with the Cleveland Indians in 1992. 

Dave only had 1 Topps card, a 1991 Topps rookie. All he needs is a 1993 Topps sunset card to complete his career Topps run.

Thanks for checking out my latest card.

1992 Topps #909 Mickey Weston

It has been a long time since I posted a new card, but here is the latest card in my custom 1992 Topps set, #909 Mickey Weston. I originally had him listed as a Baltimore Oriole in my checklist, so the first front I made for the card looked like this.
Glad I caught the mix up.

Mickey played in the Majors from 1989-1993. He came up in 1989 with the Baltimore Orioles, played with them in 1990, before going over to the Toronto Blue Jays for 1991. He played for the Philadelphia Phillies in 1992, and the New York Mets in 1993 for his final season.

Mickey only got 1 Topps card, in the 1990 set. He only appeared on 4 major issues in his career besides the Topps card, a 1990 O-Pee-Chee card, a 1990 Score, a 1990 Topps Debut card, and a 1990 Upper Deck card. Upper Deck actually listed him as "Jamie Weston" before issuing a corrected version of the card. You would think he would've got into the 1990 Bowman set, but I guess we'll never know why he didn't. Mickey is missing cards from the 1991, 1993, and 1994 Topps cards to complete his career Topps run. I am currently working on the 1994 Topps set, and here is the Mickey Weston card I made for it.
Thanks for checking out the latest card in my set.
