Wade Boggs 1988 Topps Glossy All-Star Send In

I’m always digging the cards of Wade Boggs from his early Red Sox years that feature him playing defense.

And this one from the 1988 Topps Glossy All-Star Send-In set is a beauty!

While Boggs was known for his hitting prowess, he was a sharp defender of the ‘hot corner’.  He has a lifetime fielding percentage of .962 at third base, and while that is not a record-setting number, it is fantastic for a player that is solely known for his offensive punch.

Gotta love #26!
