1992 Topps #946 Tony Castillo

Tony Castillo played in the Major Leagues from 1988 to 1998, with a season spent in the minors in 1992. He came up with the Toronto Blue Jays in 1988, played part of 1989 with them until being traded to the Atlanta Braves with future playoff hero Francisco Cabrera. He spent 1990 with the Braves, and was traded to the New York Mets in 1991 for Alejandro Pena. He signed with the Detroit Tigers for 1992, spending all of it in the minors. 1993 found him back in Toronto, and he spent 1994, 1995, and most of 1996 with them until being traded to the Chicago White Sox. The last 2 years of his career (1997 and 1998) were spent with the Pale Hose.

Tony got his first Topps card in the 1990 set. His next card would come in the 1991 set, and he would be out of the Topps radar until his final Topps card, in the 1996 set. Tony is missing a slew of cards, those being from the 1988 Topps Traded, 1989 Topps, 1989 Topps Traded, 1991 Topps Traded, 1993 Topps Traded, 1994 Topps, 1995 Topps, 1996 Topps Traded, 1997 Topps, 1998 Topps, and a 1998 Topps sunset card.
In addition to the 1992 Topps custom, I also have created customs for Tony's 1994 and 1998 Topps cards.

I am dangerously close to finishing all of the missing player checklists from every Topps regular set ever made. Just 2/3 of the 2018 set and all of 2019 to go. Once that is finished, I will go back and update the Traded sets. After that, customs, baby!

Thanks for checking out my latest post.
