Not everything on a card back deserves to be on a card back.
1988 Topps – Mark Grant. Let’s go through this line by line:
“Mark’s uncle, Richard Ramos, pitched in White Sox chain, 1953-1958.” – Ok, fine. Interesting enough. I like learning about those kinds of connections.
“A cousin, Rick Ramos, pitched in Expo chain, 1978-1983.” – Still interested.
“Mark is a clothing salesman.” – Really? Actually, I think he was a Major League Baseball pitcher. These days, Mark is a broadcaster, and a pretty popular one in San Diego, from what a quick Google search can track down. No mention of a clothing sales career anywhere. I think we could have stopped after the family connections.
Either way, I learned something today. Thanks, 1988 Topps, for making me a better person.
