Here is the guy who will probably take over for A.J. when he is gone. Right now Tyler Flowers is sitting in Triple A just waiting for his chance. He would be up with the big club, but they want him playing everyday to shore up his defense. From what I have been hearing his bat is ready, but his defense needs some work. I have a feeling that we will find out soon what he can do in the pros.
This was my first card made of a player wearing a minor league uniform. I went to a couple of Charlotte Knight games last season, and was lucky enough to see Tyler play down there. I just used the same template that I have been using, but put the Charlotte logo on the card, and just improvised the team colors for the team plate as well as the background. 1985 Topps did not always do that, but then again they didn’t make minor league cards either.
