I first heard of Kurt in 2004 when his Cal State Fullerton team was in the College World Series. I got to see his team win the title when they beat Texas in two straight in Omaha. For some reason his hard play stuck with me, and I was glad when he made it to the majors. I have seen him play a couple of times so far. I was hoping to see him play today, but the whole day game after a night game thing got in the way.
I decided to just use a picture from last season when I saw the Athletics play. It is not the best picture of Kurt, but it does look a bit like the 85 Topps picture would.
