Year: 1992

Set: Topps (Rate)

Card: #182 Jeff Reardon

“ I really like this design...and as time goes on, I like it more and more. ” -Billy Kingsley

“ Wonderful looking cards. ” -ketchupman36

“ I like that his head is out past the border, but his foot is behind it. Looks like he is actually coming out of the card. ” -switzr1

“ Simple, classic design. ” -Sportzcommish

“ He had a beard when beards were not as cool! Always liked the 1992 set....brings back good memories......no "Winner" here though. ” -tbshaw

“ Such a bland design. Probably iconic because of it... ” -suomibear8

“ Very basic but the card highlights the action player photo which is great. ” -carthage44

“ These cards seemed the first to change things around. Looking at my cards in binders (by year) it's a shock as you are flipping through to all of a sudden run into these bright white backs. It seemed from there things just got fancier and fancier. ” -RoyalChief

“ The one thing picture wise that has always bothered me about this design is the colour border just inside the picture. This card is a great example. His leg is behind the border on the left, and his head is in front of the border on the right. So...is he pitching through an open door? ” -rmpaq5

“ Ah 1992 Topps when Topps switched the "vintage" cardboard stock to thinner slightly thicker than photostock cardstock. I've always liked the simple front design (not the "gold" or "gold winners" variant/parallel with the gold embossed names you couldn't read even if you were a 10 year old kid). The back stats are nice but there is something that bugs me about them. I'm not sure what it is. Maybe using 3 or 4 font colors? ” -captkirk42

“ His head looks like it was awkwardly photoshopped onto someone else's body! Reardon was consistently good for a very long stretch. He should get more respect. ” -dilemma19

“ Watched him today on twitter give up a two run homer to Ed Sprague in the '92 World Series. I had forgotten that he had spent some time in Boston before seeing this card. Glad to see that he did get one WS ring during his long career (87 in Minnesota). ” -rmitchell6700

“ Like the 1992 Topps. Nice Clean Looking Card. ” -kirkscards

“ my favorite part about 92 topps was the pics of stadiums on the back, but this card was snubbed up that ” -Thunderfoot

“ He had a beard when it wasn't cool and he popped man buns. ” -UKboogie

Few will remember he was once the All-Time saves leader. When he was traded to the Reds, they made him shave his beard. He looked so weird without it!

I really loved this set when it came out and in hand, they are just a real nice design and clean look.  I was in Schock when they came out with the white backs, but I loved it.  After those Upper Deck cards came out, the game was upped.  I think this is the one set I had more cards of than any other set I've ever collected.  It's not my favorite, but one of them.
