Sparky Anderson 1987 Topps Detroit Tigers Manager Card
I am a big fan of the 1987 Topps baseball card set. As a kid, I built a handful of these sets and hade more than enough doubles, triples, and quadruples to fill my player collections as well.
As for Sparky Anderson and his Detroit Tigers team, the 1987 baseball season marked Sparky’s tenth season as the skipper of the club.
How did they reward him for the anniversary??
With a 1st place finish in the American League East, of course!! The Tigers went 98-64 during the ’87 campaign. The Tigers would lose to the Minnesota Twins in the LCS.
