1993 TOPPS FINEST: PAGING Nos. 64-72


A LITTLE OF EVERYTHING: A TRIPLES SAVANT, AN IDIOT SAVANT,
A HALL OF FAMER, A 50-HR PLAYER AND A PITCHER BEATEN WITH A SHOE.


HALL OF FAMERS

  • #70 Paul Molitor was elected in 2004 on the first ballot with 85.2 percent of the vote and went in as a Brewer.

FINEST OF THE NINE

  • With more than 3,300 hits and four Silver Slugger awards, Molitor might be one of the most underrated Hall of Famers in Cooperstown.

FINEST MOMENT

  • Imagine the pressure #67 Terry Steinbach felt starting the '88 All-Star Game after being voted in by the fans, hitting .219 with five homers. The pundits howled about how undeserving he was. All he did was answer with a homer in his first at-bat and later added a sacrifice fly to account for all the AL's runs and was named MVP in the 2-1 victory.

DESIGNED TO THE NINES

  • #69 Doug Jones' card rocks. The ball captured right after release and his mustache are the key components of a tremendous piece of cardboard.
