#408 Darren Daulton and Brian Harper

About the Front: Darren Daulton is perplexed by the giant baseball hurtling down from Outer Space, but Brian Harper is preoccupied with the regulation-sized baseball directly in front of him.
About the Back: Brian Harper never actually made an All-Star team. Sandy Alomar Jr. was the American League starter at catcher in the 1992 Midsummer Classic, but batted an underwhelming .241/.284/.316 with two home runs and 23 RBI in the first half.

11-Year-Old Kevin Says: I don't think I realized as a kid that Topps chose the All-Stars in their sets at their own discretion, and not necessarily based on the previous year's starters.

On This Date in 1993: April 20. Here's a glimpse at the day's games. Four extra-innings contests, and wins from some notable pitchers, including David Wells, Kevin Appier, Goose Gossage, Roger Clemens, Greg Maddux, and Dave Righetti.
