1988 Fleer Superstar Specials – Card #634 – Tony Gwynn & Vince Coleman
“Hitting King And The Thief”
Tony Gwynn and Vince Coleman are two players who can impact a game in different ways. Gwynn can do it with a well placed single, and Coleman with a well timed stolen base.
In 1987, Tony Gwynn rapped 162 singles, the most in the majors. No surprise there, Tony has now led the National League in singles three of the last four seasons. As a matter of fact, 772 of his 988 career hits have been singles, an amazing 78 percent. If Tony keeps chipping away he might someday reach the heights of Pete Rose (3,215), Ty Cobb (3,052), and Eddie Collins (2,639), the greatest singles hitters of all-time.
Vince Coleman is the most wanted man in baseball. He turns walks and singles into doubles and triples. His 109 stolen bases in 1987 made him the first player in baseball history to steal 100 or more bases in his first three major league seasons. When Vince is on base, he is one of the most disruptive forces in the game today.
