A Shoebox of Baseball Cards: San Francisco Giants

The San Francisco Giants, whose monopoly on winning the World Series on even years was broken this year.

Dave Dravecky. Now, I'm not meaning to poke fun at the man. But his 1988 Topps smug smile must've been made fun of (and maybe even gotten him some ladies). Reminds me of Barney from How I Met Your Mother who never could take a bad photograph.

Oh, and there's Todd Benzinger again. And Willie McGee. And Steve Bedrosian. And Kevin Mitchell! Sheesh: you guys get around.

Speaking of getting around. Rick Reuschel is in here from the twilight of his career. Rick is one of my favorite kinds of players. Barely eking into the 1990s, he played in three different decades.
