Todd Frohwirth, 1993 Topps #415

Why this card, and why today?

  • Because "Todd Frohwirth" is fun to say.
  • Because nothing says "Tuesday night in December" like Todd Frohwirth and 1993 Topps.
  • Because submarine-style pitchers are always cool, especially when that odd underarm delivery is coming right for you.
  • Because I'm thinking about starting a 1993 Topps blog, and I want people to tell me that I'm crazy for even considering it.
  • Because 1993 Topps reminds me of a time when I actually did walk down to the drug store to buy 79-cent packs of cards, and then traded with my friends. (Suddenly I want to have a warm glass of milk and an early bedtime.)

I would read a 1993 topps blog. That was the last set I collected before giving up the hobby.

For what it's worth, 1993 Topps is my all-time favorite baseball set. It's the first set I remember busting packs from. I remember being 7 and getting rack packs as gifts. Frank Thomas's beaming smile and Kirby Puckett's oversized bat will forever be tattooed in my memory.
