1989 Topps Record Breakers – Card #2 – Wade Boggs
Headline – “Boggs Gets 200 Hits 6th Straight Season”
The Story -Cleveland, Ohio. October 2, 1988. Red Sox’ Wade Boggs has set modern record with 200 or more hits for sixth consecutive season. The former mark of 5 campaigns was held by Chuck Klein (1929-1933), Al Simmons (1929-1933), and Charlie Gehringer (1833-1937).
My take – A true stud, think about all of the incredible hitters that came before Boggs that could not meet this mark. Carew, Brett, Rose, WOW!!!
