1993 TOPPS FINEST: PAGING Nos. 28-36


THESE NINE ACCOUNTED FOR NINE WORLD SERIES RINGS.


HALL OF FAMERS

  • #28 Ozzie Smith was inducted into Cooperstown on July 28, 2002, receiving 91.7 percent of the vote. 

FINEST OF THE NINE

  • Smith redefined the shortstop position, turning it into center stage for his highlight-reel stops and pregame gymnastics. He became a pretty good hitter, too.

FINEST MOMENT

  • The Ozzie Smith tribute continues: His clutch homer in the ninth inning of Game 5 of the NLCS in 1985 electrified Busch Stadium and served notice he could be a threat at the plate.

DESIGNED TO THE NINES

  • The composition of #36 Tony Fernandez's card is top notch. The bat, left hand and jersey crease create a diagonal line that's a treat for the eye.
