Favorite Player Collection Part 4: 1996 Topps Quinton McCracken Future Stars

One of my favorite players in the late '90's was Quinton McCracken. "Q" was a speedy outfielder for the Colorado Rockies and was selected by my hometown Tampa Bay (Devil) Rays in the '98 expansion draft. He appeared on a many cards throughout his career. My first card I got of him was his '93 Topps Prospects rookie card. He didn't appear in another Topps card until 1997. He should've at least got a card in the '96 set, so I decided to make one of him in the Future Stars subset.
He got 2 cards in the '98 set ( a Rockies and Rays card) and got one in '99 as he was the Rays MVP in '98. I don't believe he got cards in '00-'02 or '05-'07 so I might have to do a Missing Topps Cards post of him. 
I got the '94 missing Topps card of Phil Nevin done. Will probably finish the rest this weekend so I can get caught up on the card numbers again. Thanks for checking out my blog. 


  1. I liked having him around. I always seem to enjoy the Rockies a little more when they have a solid utility guy like McCracken or maybe Jeff Baker.

    Greg Norton, not so much.

  2. Utility guys are nice. I like it when some of them get a starting job like Ben Zobrist and Omar Infante have in the past. Always thought McCracken was good enough to start, and he was in '98-'99. Hopefully the Rox can get a good utility guy next year and put up some Ws.
