Mike Devereaux, 1993 Topps Black Gold #28

For as fervently as I collected 1993 Topps in my youth, I never did get my hands on the two Orioles Black Gold inserts...until now. A hearty padded envelope arrived yesterday from Max, with a stack of 2014 Heritage set needs complemented by some assorted O's cards. Included were 1993 Black Gold cards of Brady Anderson and Mike Devereaux, thus filling my team needs from that particular 44-card insert set. I still think these cards, which were seeded one per every 72 wax packs, hold up well, which you can't say for most of their contemporaries. The design just pops. I remember how thrilled I was when I pulled a winner card that entitled me to the last 11 cards in the Black Gold set. Now that I've got Brady and Devo, I've rekindled some of that feeling. Gracias, Max!

I never realized Devo's 1992 season was so good -- 180 hits, 7th in MVP voting.

I love everything about 1993 Topps. It just works.

I picked up a 128 card lot of these on Listia. I made 2 sets and the extras are going around the world. Glad they brought you so much joy.
