Fun Cards: 1988 Topps All-Star Shawon Dunston

What if Topps had made All-Star cards for every player on the All-Star roster in 1988? Then we would have had cards like this…

Instead, from 1984-1990, Ozzie Smith ruled the shortstop position for Topps. And for good reason…he is, after all, the Wizard. Another Hall of Famer, Barry Larkin, took over in 1991. But Shawon Dunston, who made the team in 1988 and 1990, was shut out.

Dunston didn’t play in the 1988 Midsummer Classic, but did get two plate appearances in 1990 against Bret Saberhagen and Chuck Finley.

  1. For all the Shawon Dunston cards that I collected, it’s funny that I don’t recall this one!

    • Hi Matt, these are not actual cards. I’m just imagining what it might have looked like of each of the 1988 All-Stars had cards in the 1988 style.

  2. Oh! Haha! You did a sweet job mocking up these cards! Fooled me!
