Last year, I added the 1975 Herb Washington card with the position of "Pinch Runner" into my collection. It's the only card ever issued with that designation.
Over the weekend, I was looking through drawers and I came across this card.
When one looks at Jose's baseball reference page, he's also listed as a pinch hitter there, as well as a first baseman. His 1991 debut (his only season) was as a 30 year old rookie. His only big league cards were this one and his 1992 Topps ones. And he's still in baseball as a broadcaster.
I'm probably the only person on the planet that considers this card worthy of a hard toploader, but it will go nicely beside the Herb Washington in the box.
You'll never see that designation on an AL player's card.ReplyDelete
I have an other card stating that position. Let me just check my list and I'll show you ;)ReplyDelete
I found it! It's 1992 Leef series 2 card #389 Dave Hansen. The card states his positions being PH/3B. That is the closest I could get to a Pinch-Hitter card ;)ReplyDelete
