1984 Topps – Mike Moustakas
Mike may get a few cards on this site. He has a few things going for him. One of them is that he is a hot young prospect. The second is that he plays for the Royals. For some reason when I make a custom card of a Royals player I tend to like it. It must be something about their color scheme that I like. The third thing he has going for him is that he hit me a ball in batting practice. Any time a player gets me a souvenir I tend to make a few cards of him. For some reason I like this set. It may be due to the fact that it was the first set that I collected. I only had a few cards, but they were from this set. That might be why I try and make these cards as much as I can.
I took this picture as Mike popped out in the sixth inning. I try and put pictures of players doing something positive on their cards, but Mike did not have a great night on the Fourth. He struck out looking twice, popped up to the shortstop, and popped out to Konerko here. I had to use some pictures of him batting. The smaller headshot I took before the game as Mike was warming up. I tried to get a couple pictures of him, but didn’t even think about getting a headshot. I was glad when I found this picture that I could use.
