1984 Topps Traded Orel Hershiser

One of my favorite baseball players of all-time is Orel Hershiser. I own at least 60 of his baseball cards, including his 1985 Topps rookie card, and his 2004 Topps Clubhouse Collection game-worn jersey card which I got him to autograph through the mail in 2005. I had originally planned to make 1985 Topps Olympic cards for Will Clark and Barry Larkin as cards # 9 and 10 in my set, but since Bob Lemke did such an amazing job with his cards and since there weren't many photos to choose from, I decided to replace those cards with this card, and a 1994 Topps Carlton Fisk. I think I will probably just stick to making cards that noboby else (to my knowledge) has attempted making. Anyways, since Topps didn't make a card of Orel Hershiser in 1984 after he debuted in 1983, here is his 1984 Topps Traded rookie card.
