1991 Topps Keith Hernandez

Keith Hernandez was on his way out of baseball by the time 1990 hit. He played for the Mets in 1989, but was just a fraction of his former self, hitting only .233. He got a card in the 1990 Topps set, and signed with the Indians for the 1990 season. He only played in 45 games, hitting .200 with 1 Home Run, and retired after the season. He didn't get a 1991 sunset card from Topps, and only appeared in Fleer and Score sets in 1991.

Keith played in the Majors from 1974-1990, and the 1991 set was the only one that didn't include Hernandez. There were a few good players missing from that set, including Goose Gossage, a Bill Buckner sunset card, and Keith.

I am headed to Alabama for the weekend to see my cousin get married. Hopefully I won't see too many obnoxious 'Bama fans. I probably won't post again until sometime next week, but wanted to go ahead and post this one before I leave.
Thanks for checking out my latest custom.

  1. Very cool! Man, it woulda been nice if Mex made the 40th anniversary Topps set. Alas, it wasn't to be.
