Dave Winfield 1989 Topps

Dave Winfield 1989 Topps

The 1989 Topps design has quickly become one of my favorites from the 1980’s.  I like the style, I like the incorporation of the team’s colors, and I like the photography.  Well, most of the time I like the photos that they used.  This base card does nothing for me…  Who wants to see ‘Big Dave Winfield’ sitting on the bench?   Come on, show him making a pay in the outfield or hitting a ball over the fence or running the base paths.  Don’t show me a Hall Of Fame player riding the pine…  give me a break!!!

Happy Birthday Bo Jackson!!!

“Bo knows Birthdays”

46 of them to be exact.  That’s right, the great Bo Jackson turns 46 years old today.

Arguably the most exciting player in the major leagues over the last 30 years, Bo Jackson brought an enthusiasm to the game that baseball’s biggest stars couldn’t compare to.  Bo was not the best hitter, best fielder, or best base runner, but he was incredible to watch. 

For Bo’s birthday, I would love to give him a career that was injury free and strictly focused on baseball.  I in no way want to take away any of the ‘2-Sport’ phenomenon that Bo caused by playing baseball and football, I just want to see how good he could have become if he focused on just 1 sport.  He may not rank amongst the best of all-time, but his highlight reel would be worthy of that ranking!!!

Happy Birthday Bo!!!
