Tim Raines 1983 Fleer

There is next to nothing exciting to say about this baseball card of Tim Raines from the 1983 Fleer set.

So, instead of dwelling on that fact, I will jump right into the 1983 baseball season and show off a few highlights that Mr. Raines gave us.

And here they are – 720 plate appearances with 97 walks and 70 strikeouts.  183 hits gave him a .298 batting average and aided his .393 on-base percentage.  32 doubles, 8 triples, and 11 home runs along with 71 RBI.  90 stolen bases and 133 runs scored.

In that ’83 season, Raines made the All-star team for the third season in a row.  He also finished in 5th place for the NL MVP award that year – his highest ranking season of his career!!
