Captured: 1989 Topps #3 – Gary Carter
I opened up my mailbox yesterday and discovered a fine trade package from Tom of The Angels, In Order. Among the goodness inside was a stack of ’84 Topps that’ll push me a bit closer to completing the set, a nice chunk of early 90’s Astros, and a few of the ’88 Donruss cards I need.
Oh, and there’s this: what was the #7 card on my Most Wanted list, 1989 Topps #3 depicting Gary Carter’s record for career putouts. Thanks Tom!
Alright, now I didn’t really expect this one to be too hard to track down. But, the addition of this card brings me a mere two cards shy of completing the 1989 Topps set. That would be my first compiled set ever.
I suppose it’s time to add the following two cards to my Most Wanted column now.
- 1989 Topps #298: Chris James
- 1989 Topps #523: Andres Thomas
