Two Teams, One Player – 1989 Topps, Jesse Orosco

5 Sep

1989 Topps - Jesse Orosco

1989 Topps Traded - Jesse Orosco

Jesse Orosco signed as a free agent with the Cleveland Indians in time for the 1989 season, but 1989 Topps had already been printed showing him as a Dodger.  So, he cracked the lineup for the 1989 Topps Traded set.

On neither card does it say “Orosco, a nine-year veteran, plans to play professional baseball for the next one hundred years,” even though he almost did.  Well, he retired in 2003 at the age of 46, but impressive all the same.

Turns out, baseball cards can’t predict the future.
