1993 TOPPS FINEST: PAGING Nos. 82-90


LANGSTON AND JEFFERIES ARE IN GOOD COMPANY.


HALL OF FAMERS

  • Officially four of them, but there will be six before you know it. #84 Andre Dawson was inducted in 2010 with 77.9 percent of the vote; #86 Rickey Henderson made it in '09 with 94.8 percent; #88 Roberto Alomar in '11 with 90 percent; and #90 Wade Boggs in '05 with 91.9 percent.

FINEST OF THE NINE

  • Flip a coin: #85 Greg Maddux or Rickey? Rickey or Maddux? Go with Rickey, an everyday player. His ability to get on base and create runs set the bar.

FINEST MOMENT

  • #87 Tom Glavine shutting down the Indians in Game 6 of the '95 World Series will live forever in Atlanta sports history as its crowning achievement. His eight one-hit innings on Oct. 28 protected a 1-0 lead and clinched the city's first major sports championship.

DESIGNED TO THE NINES

  • Love the electric green All-Star design, but I love #82 Mark Langston's card best. The gangly one-legged follow through makes for an eye-catching card.
