1992 Topps ’90 Reds Cards

19 11 2011

The peak of players from the ’90 World Series peaked in 1990 and 1991 – 23 out of the 25 total Piniella plus the 24 guys who played in the postseason.  In 1990, Piniella and Billy Bates didn’t have a card, while in 1991, Bates and Ron Oester didn’t.  Note: I’ve since realized that Bill Doran did not actually play in the ’90 postseason, so my “denominator” has come down by one since previous posts.  I’d go back and change it, but re-scanning would be way too much work.  Anyways, this post is going to be a little more difficult.  Since I only got one box of the 1992 cards, I’ve only got 65% of the set, and I’m plenty of cards short of every card out of the set.

The numbers were down from the year before – but only down 1 to 22 in the 1992 Topps set.  Oester and Bates still didn’t have a Topps card – both were out of the majors by 1991.  Rick Mahler was also done – his last card of any brand was in 1991.  There was again only one subset card, and again it was an All-Star card of Barry Larkin.

I didn’t even get a proportionate share of ’90 Reds players – I’m actually missing 11 of the 23 total cards after busting the wax box.

1992 – Lou Piniella, Jose Rijo, Danny Jackson, Tom Browning, Randy Myers, Norm Charlton, Rob Dibble, Jack Armstrong, Scott Scudder, Joe Oliver, Hal Morris, Mariano Duncan, Barry Larkin, Chris Sabo, Billy Hatcher, Eric Davis, Paul O’Neill, Jeff Reed, Todd Benzinger, Luis Quinones, Herm Winningham, Glenn Braggs, Barry Larkin (AS)
