Default 1985 Johnson City card set?

I have a co worker that played for the Cardinals organization on this team and he has not been able to ever find this card of himself. Could somebody direct me to a site or person that may deal in minor league cards?
My co worker does have two of the three cards that were distributed of him....just not the Johnson City card.
Any help would be appreciated.

My co workers name is Chris Forrest.

Here are a couple of links:

http://www.lakecountryminors.com/

http://www.stbsports.com/

Neither of those sites have a 1985 Johnson City team set.

I used to collect minor league team sets and have a list of team sets that were issued each year. I do not have a 1985 Johnson City team set listed. It's possible that one was issued and I just never saw it listed anywhere and therefore don't have it in my list, but I tried to be as thorough as possible. On a related note, the first Johnson City team set that I have listed is the 1989 set issued by Star.

Default Thanks

Thanks guys.......after talking to him a bit more I found out that Topps took a picture of him at Johnson City and he signed a contract for a whopping $5 with them. He wasn't absolutely positive that they (Topps) ever produced that third card.
Interestingly enough he said he never cashed that check from Topps because he thought that it was neater seeing his name on that check than having the $5.
Thanks again for your help.

Chad

I think Topps just signed minor leaguers like that to get them under contract "just in case" they made it to the majors. They never produced any minor league sets until the 2000s. Sadly, that probably means there are hundreds, if not thousands of minor league photos in Topps vault that never saw the light of day. After looking at his record on Baseball Reference, now I'm curious. What happened to him in 1988 that he didn't play? Injury?
