1993 TOPPS FINEST: PAGING Nos. 37-45


GRISSOM, LOFTON AND HAMILTON COMBINED FOR 1,214 STEALS.


HALL OF FAMERS

  • None.

FINEST OF THE NINE

  • #43 Kenny Lofton stole 622 bases and was part of six teams that made the postseason 11 times. He was one of the best athletes to play the game.

FINEST FUNNIEST MOMENT

  • OK, I know baseball is suppose to be serious and professional and all, but I still find #43 John Kruk's goofball antics against #154 Randy Johnson at the 1993 All-Star Game funny and unforgettable.

DESIGNED TO THE NINES

  • #42 Jeff Montgomery's photo is a standard-issue pitching shot, but it works great within the Finest design template. The curve of his glove arm fits perfectly along the design element circle. Combined with the ball hand reaching out of the circle and into the nameplate and the classic Royals' uniform script, this card is a crown jewel.
