Wade Boggs 1996 Topps
There it is, one of my favorite left-handed swings in baseball history.
Watching Wade Boggs approach the plate and go to work was so much fun to behold. He was an absolute master of hitting.
What I really like about this baseball card is that Wade is sporting his road uniform while playing for the Yankees, but he is in his old home – Fenway Park.
Boggs spent the first 11 seasons of his 16-year career as a member of the Boston Red Sox. I’m sure that it had to be a little odd when he returned to Fenway and had to head towards the ‘Visiting Clubhouse’.
In ’96, Boggs hit .311 for the Yankees as he connected for 156 hits in 501 at-bats.
