Del Unser Needs List


Another Central Illinois player to collect! Del Unser is from Decatur and he played 15 seasons in the majors with five teams. His baseball card appearances are very memorable as he has a Topps All-Star Rookie Cup card in the 1969 Topps set. What a way to have your first baseball card.

Unser also has a 1970 Ovenca Venezuelan League card which will pose a challenge for the completist in me. His 1975 Topps Mini card from his days with the Phillies will probably become my favorite card of his.

Between the release of the 1977 Topps set the the 1977 O-Pee-Chee set, Unser got another card and grew a mustache (he's got one in the O-Pee-Chee version but is clean shaven on his Topps card.)

Later in his career, Unser became an expert pinch-hitter and in 1979 he his three consecutive pinch-hit home runs. It was a major league record and Topps gave him a 1979 Highlights card No. 6 in the 1980 Topps set.

This is going to be a fun player collection to build.
