1993 Topps, Mark Thompson

#419 Mark Thompson

Here is card that I got signed through the mail in either 1994 or '95. I'm not really sure what prompted me to go for Mark's autograph. But, you can never go wrong with a first round draft pick, even if it is one that never really pans out.

Mark spent parts of seven seasons in the Majors with the Rockies and the Cardinals. He finished with a 5.74 career ERA with 161 walks and 198 strikeouts.

This isn't the best looking draft pick card ever made, but it sure beats the last Topps draft pick card I posted on here (1992 Benji Gil). At least Mark is in a baseball uniform.
