Airbrushed Fridays: 1991 Topps #486
The first Airbrushed Friday of the new year brings us to a set we've never seen here before.
Who is he? Tommy Greene was a promising young pitcher whose career was cut short very early due in large part to recurring shoulder problems. Greene was an Atlanta first round pick who found himself part of a crowded young staff that included guys like John Smoltz and Steve Avery.
How did he get here? Atlanta traded Greene to the Phillies along with Dale Murphy in the middle of his rookie season. He would go on to throw a no-hitter the following year and was a key member of the rotation that lost to the Blue Jays in the 1993 World Series.
Repeat offender? No
Other versions of this card: None
Airbrushed Score: 6
Comments: Almost all the logo stuff is obscured, which makes this a good sneaky airbrush job.
