Did You Know…

The Opening Day starting pitcher for the Arizona Diamondbacks in their inaugural baseball games as a major league franchise was Andy Benes.

1989 Topps – Pack #2

Here is what I pulled from pack #2 of the 6 that I will be opening today:

pack 2a

pack 2b

Notable:  Benes was a rookie card that everyone wanted in 1989.  That feeling did not last too long though…  Chili Davis put up some incredible numbers for a ‘non-star’ player.

Pick of the Pack:  The Mike Greenwell All-Star card is the highlight of the pack.  Had it not been for Mr. 40/40 in 1988, it’s very likely that Greenwell would have been the AL MVP that year.
