1992 ron robinson

ron robinson didn't get a card in the 1992 topps set, but o-pee-chee came through for the bearded one.  here is his 1992 o-pee-chee card:
and the back:
ron had the misfortune of being traded from the reds to the brewers during the reds' 1990 world championship season, so he missed out on the postseason.  he did pitch well for milwaukee, though, going 12-5 in 22 starts with 7 complete games and 2 shutouts, and he pitched well enough to win 4 more games but his offense let him down. unfortunately, robinson was injured in his first start of the 1991 season, and missed the rest of the campaign. topps dropped him from the 1992 checklist , and here we are. robinson did return to the mound for the brewers in 1992, but retired in july of that year as a result of his injuries.

here's the topps card o-pee-chee booted to make room for robinson, tom glavine's all-star card.  front:
and back:
voici à vous, 1992 ron robinson!
