Dave Winfield 1990 Score
Dave Winfield was a monster. And when he swung the bat and connected, there was always a chance that the ball was going to sail over the outfield wall.
But, there was never any doubt that it would be hit hard.
After all, Dave Winfield is 6 feet, 6 inches tall and weighed 220 pounds during his playing days.
This card of ‘Big Dave’ from the 1990 Score baseball card set captures that powerful swing very nicely.

Rickey Henderson 1987 Donruss Pop-Up All-Star
As a kid that was an avid baseball card collector in 1987, I don’t recall ever knowing about these Donruss Pop-Up cards.
I now know that these Pop-Ups were part of a larger All-Star set that Donruss issued in 1987 that followed the design of the base product from the same year.
These Pop-Ups are actually fold-out style cards that are pretty neat.
But, I would never pop mine out or stand mine up. At least I wouldn’t do that if I only had one…
Here is the card of Rickey Henderson from that set:
That’s the Metrodome in the backdrop, right?
