759th Place - Todd Frohwirth

Card #378

Todd Frohwirth had an impressive cup-of-coffee debut for the Phillies in 1987.  In 10 games and 11 innings, he didn't allow a run while striking out nine.  His first Topps card, though, leaves a lot to be desired.

Let's be honest - Todd is looking dorky here.  He has a confused look on his face, as if he just asked, "Am I posing correctly for this picture?"  His eyes are darting off to the side, possibly seeking a way to escape the Topps photographer.  The only thing saving this card is the "Fro" nickname on his glove, which is kind of cool.

Frohwirth was a submarine-style hurler, too bad Topps couldn't find an action shot.  Everybody loves a good underhanded throwing pic...
