1987 Topps – Ryan Roberts
Ryan is a player that normally would not be on this site. I don’t know too much about him even though he is on the Diamondbacks. I saw him hit a home run live though so he will get this card as well as a card in the ’11 custom set. I love this ’87 Topps design so I have used it here and there for my cards that will go on the back of the custom set for this year. It is a simple design, but I think that it has held up well.
I took this picture in early April as Ryan was batting against Andrew Cashner at Wrigley. My seat was perfect for watching a game, but was a tough angle for good pictures. I used this one because its lack of action closely resembled the actual ’87 Topps cards.
