1979 Topps Flashback: Greg Luzinski has absolutely nothing to do with the Miami Marlins, but I thought I'd feature his 1979 Topps card in this series preview post since I hope to be enjoying some Bull's BBQ this week. Luzinski mans an autograph booth just beyond the cashiers at Bull's BBQ at Citizens Bank Park, next to a small souvenir stand. My oldest son Doug had his picture taken with Bull a few summers ago, and I'd like to get an updated picture at some point this season.
