Coaches Center Part 7: 1999 Topps #493 Orlando Gomez Coach

Orlando Gomez is a longtime player, coach, and minor league manager. As of this year, it marks his 53rd consecutive year in baseball at some position. His time in the Majors started in 1991 as the Bullpen Coach for the Texas Rangers. He served as the Rangers First Base Coach in 1992. He got back to the Majors in 1998 with the Devil Rays as their Bullpen Coach after 5 years in the minors. He stayed with the Rays through the end of the 2000 season. His final 2 years in the Majors came in 2003 and 2004 as the Seattle Mariners Bullpen Coach. 

Orlando doesn't have any cards in any major sets, but does appear in a number of minor league issues.  He is missing cards from the 1992, 1993, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2004, and 2005 Topps sets. 
I knocked out the 1999 set with today's card, and I also made his 1992 Topps card (front and back) as part of my other blog, Completing the 1992 Topps Set.  
Thanks for checking out the lastest custom.
