Random Topps Card of the Day: 1993 Topps #24 Tim Naehring

We're giving the Topps Card Randomizer the week off so we can highlight seven cards redeemed from Topps' Million Card Giveaway. Introducing the Random Topps Card of the Day for Friday, February 26, 2010:

  • Official Card Set Name and Card Number: 2009 Topps #151.
  • Player Name, position, team: Tim Naehring, shortstop, Boston Red Sox.
  • Major League Debut: July 15, 1990.
  • Last Line of Statistics: 1992 stats (Red Sox): 72 G, 34 AB, 7 R, 10 H, 0 2B, 0 3B, 2 HR, 5 RBI, 1 SB, .471 SLG, 8 BB, 6 SO, .294 AVG.
  • Any special information about player: Drafted by Red Sox #8th, June 1988. Bats: right, Throws: right.
  • Any special information about this specific card: Naehring's fourth regular Topps card (total includes regular and traded Topps cards). Played sparingly for the Red Sox for the first three years of his career, only reaching more than 100 games played twice (1995 & 1996). Tje 1993 Topps design is great. It's too bad that every time Topps has reprinted the card, they've used Derek Jeter's draft pick card. Which, while a great card in it's own right, clearly does not really represent what the actual design looks like (extra lage picture, team-colored ribbons holding the player's name, with the team name below). Blurb on the back does talk about Tim's 2-run home run in the 19th inning (not a typo) that gave the Red Sox a 7-5 victory at Cleveland 04/11/1992.
  • Lo-Hi Beckett value: $0.02-$0.10.
  • How many cards of this player do I own?: 11 cards.
Tomorrow's card will be: 1985 Topps #30. Post will arrive at 1:00 PM CST. Join us then, won't you?
