1983 Topps Eric Hosmer custom card   2 comments

1983 Topps Royals Eric Hosmer custom cardAlright, this is my favorite card from my 1983 Topps tribute Royals set. I think it is a great shot of the hot young rookie for the Royals. Hosmer had his first career walk-off hit today so I figured it was only fitting to post this card. Hopefully this win will slingshot the Royals back into playing decent baseball again. Oh yeah, don’t look now but this was a 3rd consecutive really good outing for Joakim Soria. Please don’t rush to get him back to the closers role though, make sure he is comfortable before that happens.

  1. Sounds redundant to say…but really nice work as usual! I love the contrast in pictures that you chose. He even wears that vacant look that so many cardboard gods in the 80s seemed to possess.

  2. I picked all of my “mugshot” pics from the same site so they all match, it made the set a whole lot easier to complete. Your right about the blank look, had to be a spring training photo shoot. He has come a long way since then.
