Richie Sexson Missing Topps Cards

Richie Sexson played in the Majors from 1997-2008. He played with the Cleveland Indians from 1997 until the middle of 2000 when he was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers. He played with the Brewers until the end of the 2003 season, twice hitting 45 Homers in a season. He got traded to the Arizona Diamondbacks in the offseason, played with them through an injury filled 2004, and then signed with the Seattle Mariners. He played 2005-2008 with Seattle, getting released in August of 2008 after struggling with the team. He was picked up by the New York Yankees on July 18, finished the year with them, before calling it a career. I actually got to see him play during his short time in New York. My brother-in-law JT and I were on a baseball road trip that July, and we saw game 1, and the pregame warmups of game 3 of a Sox-Yankees series at Fenway Park. He didn't get an at-bat, but did come in to replace Jason Giambi at first and recorded a putout.

Sexson was covered pretty well on Topps cards during his career. He is only missing a 2009 Topps card from his playing days. I decided to give him a 1994 Topps Draft Pick and a 1994 Topps Prospect card as well. I may add a 1997 Prospects card if I can find a few more First Basemen to pair with him.  Here is Richie's career Topps run.

That completes Richie's career Topps run. 
I have been doing a few projects for other people lately, but it looks like they may be done, and I plan on doing some more of my custom projects, including finishing some cards from the 2020 Topps Archives Lost Cards project, doing some more 1998 Topps customs, and finishing my Favorite Player Collection player posts. 
I also placed an order on COMC, so I will have a bunch more cards to add to my Favorite Player/rookie card/highlight binders. Spoiler alert: I got many guys from the Dutch National Team. 
Thanks for checking out my latest post.
