Fun Cards Submission: 1972 Topps Devin Mesoraco “Boyhood Photos of the Stars”
Young Cincinnati backstop Devin Mesoraco was a first-round draft pick out of Punxsutawney High School in Pennsylvania in 2007 and made a fairly quick ascension to the major leagues. He had a brief setback last season, and is still not hitting as well as fans would like, but at age 25 he has time to develop into a fine young ballplayer. Hopefully, with veteran Ryan Hanigan showing him the ropes, Mesoraco will learn to shore up his game on both defense and offense and grow into a superstar behind the plate.
Thanks to TWJ contributor Patrick for this “fun card” showing Mesoraco on the 1972 Topps “Boyhood Photos of the Stars” design.
