Sparky Anderson 1989 Topps Detroit Tigers Manager Card

Sparky Anderson 1989 Topps Detroit Tigers Manager Card

There he is and he may be getting ready to lay into one of his players…

One of the things that I most remember about watching Anderson as a manager was that his body language almost always reflected his mood.  He was not one to hide how he felt.

And in this shot, used on his 1989 Topps baseball card, it looks like he is not too happy as he peers at someone on the bench for the Tigers.

SPARKY 7

The 1989 baseball season was a mess.  Finishing in last place for the first time in his eleven years with the team, Anderson’s Tigers team was 59-103 finishing the season with the most losses in major league baseball.

Now I know why Sparky was so upset….
