Card #9: 1991 Topps #165

YEAR: 1991
BRAND: Topps
SET: Topps
SUBSET: All Star Rookie
TEAM: Cleveland Indians

I remember getting this in a repack box I got for my birthday.  The Red Sox only had one card in the box I needed, a 1990 Topps Carlos Quintana, but this card came out.  I am sure that this card was the one that lead to me starting the single player collection of Alomar.  1991 Topps had a lot of terrific photography in the set, and this is no different.  Alomar is chasing a pop foul in a type of shot you just do not see too often.  Add to that the All Star Rookie trophy and this is an impressive card.
