Baseball Cards! 1992 Topps #156 Manny Ramirez (Rookie)

Manny Ramirez has quite a few rookie cards. A Bowman, Donruss, Pinnacle, Score, Stadium Club, Topps and Upper Deck. Of them, I think that this is my favorite.  I think it has much to do with the brand–Topps–and the classic design. I also like the back of the card, which has a nice little write up and his career high school stats.

The 1992 Topps set is unique for a couple reasons.  It was the first time that Topps released a base set that did include gun or wax wrapping.   Also, it was printed on white card stock, a first for the company. Notable rookies in the set include Brad Ausmus #58, Shawn Green #276, Eddie Taubensee #427, Chipper Jones #551, Jeromy Burnitz #591 and Scott Hatteberg #734
