‘The 40/40 Club’ – 1980’s – A Review

This was very fun, and very exhausting.  I am going to take a break from these kinds of ‘themed’ posts so I can focus a little more on cards and the upcoming season.

I hope you enjoyed my recap of the best players to debut during the 1980’s as much as I enjoyed writing about them.

And now for 1 last time, I give you the ’40/40′ club…
