30 Day Baseball Card Challenge - Day 17

Day 17: A card from the first set you put together hand collated.

Day 17 and Day 3 collide as 1987 Topps was the first set I tried to complete and hand collated.  So instead of combing through the checklist of 792 cards and trying to pick one out I decided to let the fates decided which card to feature here.  I went over to and had their random number generator pick a number for me.  And that number was 535.  Who was number 535?  Tony Armas from the Red Sox.  I've included the back of the card because Topps thought that Tony coming from a very large family was the most interesting thing to say about him.  A quick googling of Tony lets me know that he was one of the top sluggers in the American League in the 80's.  He also was on the DL quite a bit.

  1. I had great memories watching Armas play alongside Rickey Henderson and Dwayne Murphy in the Oakland A's outfield back in the early 80's.
