1994 Upper Deck Fun Pack #168 Carlos Garcia
This is only my second card of this 240 card set, and the other is Mr. Upper Deck, Ken Griffey, Jr. I'm not sure what the deal is with Garcia's photo here. The helmet appears blue and blank, and it might say Pirates on his jersey, but that's not a normal Pittsburgh font. He was already in the major leagues for a few years by this point, so I wouldn't expect them to get stuck showing him in a minor league uniform. Was this some special promotional uniform and/or day?

  1. That's a throwback the Pirates wore in 1993. Here's Steve Cooke sporting it:


    1. Thanks, none of my image searching for throwbacks showed anything like that. I don't know why I didn't think to check on one of the uniform history sites, which I've now done and I see it's from the 1930s. I guess I just never thought of Pittsburgh as ever wearing blue and red.
