1991 Topps - Ivan Rodriguez

Ivan on Monday again and this time a two for one deal. Today's first card is number 101T in the 1991 Topps Traded set.

The back of this card re-states that Ivan was signed as a free agent by Texas in 1988. It also lets us know that he led South Atlantic League catchers in 1989 with 96 assists. He threw out 44 of the 133 runners trying to swipe on him.

I like this card. The 1991 Topps design is one of the better ones from the time period and the picture is a decent headshot. This is one card I would like to get autographed. It seems like it would lend itself to that.

The second card is the Tiffany version of the first card. The card is the same but with a lighter colored back and a coat of gloss on the front.
