1989 Topps Major League Debut #63: Mike Huff

Mike Huff

PHOTO: What is with the weird airbrushing on the card? Look down by Huff's right foot (that's the one on the left of the photo.) Looks like Topps covered a bunch of stuff with black and left a weird sort of green area. Hmm.

STAT: Huff ended up with 9 career homers in 804 AB, and they were kind of interesting. Every last one was a solo shot and one led off a game.

ANAGRAM: Mike Huff = Hike muff. [Insert pornographic joke here.]

CAREER: 2/10

Huff didn't get too much playing time and didn't do a lot with the time he got. He was a decent part-time player in 1994 with the Blue Jays.


  1. That airbrushing is weird. My only thought is maybe they just wanted to make the whole area behind him black to make the photo look better but it really is not needed. We may never know.

  2. Maybe there was someone showing his 'hike muff' in the dugout and that is why they had to airbrush it out?
