#100 - Will Clark - As usual, the big number cards (100, 200, 250, etc) showcase some of the more popular players in the game at the time. As I mentioned in my last post, The Thrill was one of 3 players I collected as a kid. This is not one of his finer cards though...
#107 - Fred Lynn - Detroit Tigers - If this were an O-Pee-Chee card it would read "now with Padres", as Fred signed with them as a free agent for the 1990 season. It would be his last.
#112 - Glenn Wilson - I know this is an odd choice but I think this card is great. The orange border really works here, and I love how your eye is drawn to the similarity between the stripes on Wilson's shoulders and the multi-colored seats in the background. The glasses don't hurt either.
#121 - Robin Ventura - This is Ventura's second base Topps card, and the first featuring him in a White Sox uniform. I've always liked this one.
#130 - Bert Blyleven - I'm generally not a fan of posed shots (unless they are on a 50's card and feature pre-game warmup action in the background). I think this one actually works pretty well though...
#134 - Earl Cunningham - #1 Draft Pick - Not the type of Bruins card I usually feature on the blog. Earl is another player who gets a card in this set yet never had a single MLB at bat in his career.
#142 - Jeff Wetherby - The border is ugly as sin here, but I just like the nice sunny day in the background. There's nothing better than baseball on a day like that.
#155 - Ellis Burks - Burks' stolen base numbers dropped in 1990, it was the first time in 4 seasons with the Red Sox that he failed to steal 20. He had a great season offensively though.
#161 - Harold Reynolds - Long before his "hugging" days at ESPN. I actually really like Harold as part of a telecast, I used to watch him all the time on Baseball Tonight.
#162 - Todd Zeile - Future Star - As a kid I thought every player that had a Future Star card in the set was the next big thing. Todd did stick around for 15 years or so. He hit a homer in his final at bat, which was also the last home run ever hit against the Montreal Expos.
#164 - Jeff Juden - #1 Draft Pick - Alright, a #1 Draft Pick card of a player who actually enjoyed some MLB action!
#180 - Tim "Rock" Raines - One of the greatest speed threats of his time. I think Rock saw some increased support for his induction to the Hall of Fame last year, but still came up significantly short. If you can believe Wikipedia then I think he got about a 30% vote.
#182 - Mookie Wilson - Another portrait shot that I like for some reason...
#185 - Ruben Sierra - Ruben had a pretty weak 1990 season, sandwiched in between great 1989 and 1991 campaigns.
