Tim Raines 1986 Fleer
I cannot tell if the photographer had Tim’s attention in this shot or if he was told to not look directly at the camera. And to be honest, I don’t think that it really mattered wither way… the card kind of stinks!!!
You all know that I am a sucker for old-school uniforms and logos, but even 2 prominent Expos logos cannot save this card. The photo is way too ‘zoomed-in’. And the fact that the seats over Raines’ shoulders are empty doesn’t help matters.
Instead, I will focus on the positive and share some of his season highlights from 1986.
- .334 batting average(career high)
- 194 hits(career high)
- 91 runs scored
- 70 stolen bases
- 60 strikeouts in 664 plate appearances
- 6th All-star selection
- 1st and only Silver Slugger award
- Highest finish in MVP race – 6th place
Ah, that’s more like it!! I’m good again…
