‘Same Card, Different Paths’ – Card #36

‘Same Card, Different Paths’ – Card #36

1986 Fleer – Card # – AKA – ‘The Paul O’Neill Rookie Card’

Kal Daniels – Lasting just 7 years in the big leagues, Daniels had some incredible success.  Batting .320 and .334 in his first 2 seasons, Daniels was on par with the other top rookies of the Class of 1986.  Tallying 104 career home runs and 87 stolen bases, he was also a power hitter that had the speed to swipe bases as well. 

Paul O’Neill – A 5-time All-star, O’Neill was wildly popular during his playing days.  A solid hitter that was able to deliver the long ball as well as run the bases well, O’Neill’s offensive talents were great compliments to the teams he played for.  The member of 5 World Series championship teams, O’Neill found himself on some amazing baseball rosters.  In 85 post-season games, he hit .285 while collecting 85 hits, scoring 39 runs, crushing 11 home runs, and driving in 39.
