Sparky Anderson 1990 Topps Detroit Tigers Manager Card
“Laid back, with my mind on my money and my money on my mind”.
Gotta love it! Of all of the images that Topps could have chosen of Sparky Anderson for their 1990 Topps set, they went with one in which he appears to not really be doing anything at all.
They could have given us one with him chatting with players or arguing with an umpire, but instead we got one of him sitting back, somewhat relaxed.
As for the 1990 baseball season, the Tigers were 79-83 with a .488 win percentage. They finished in third place in their division in 1990, and I have to guess that capturing Anderson this relaxed during the 1990 season was a rare occurence.
