Rod Carew 1991 Bowman – Special Edition – Card #3
In 1991, Bowman put out a five-card set of baseball cards that honored the magnificent career of Rod Carew.
1991 was the year of Carew’s induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, so putting together a set of cards to honor his career was a good move by Bowman. And I am sure that the timeliness of the set was appreciated by Carew’s fans and collectors.
The 5-card set features Rod during various phases of his playing days.
And this card, #3 of the set, depicts him right in the middle of his career – while winning numerous batting titles as a member of the Minnesota Twins.
Have a peek:
I’m not certain that the scan does the card justice. That #29 logo in the upper-right is awesome!!!
And yes, I will be actively going after cards 1,2,4, and 5!
