Yesterday, I showed off some of my spoils from Tribe Cards' recent giveaway. Today, I return to the 1994 Fleer box to see what cards I can pull for myself! This is the fourth pack out of the box.
170. Jeff Montgomery
262. Goose Gossage
275. Todd Van Poppel
Probably the one name that most of us early 90s kids think of when someone mentions "failed prospects." That must suck for Van Poppel. Then again, the guy did make the Major Leagues which is more than I'll ever do in my lifetime.
308. Tom Henke
334. Rickey Henderson
384. Jose Guzman
409. Rob Dibble
418. Joe Oliver
That's a lot of concentration on Oliver's face, either that or he has gas.
516. Ramon Martinez
524. Cory Snyder
629. Rod Brewer
638. Omar Olivares
710. Lone Star Lumber
The last two cards are both Superstar Specials subset cards - Lone Star Lumber features Palmeiro and Juan Gonzalez) but I preferred that cleverly (?) named Batmen card instead!
Major League Prospects: 20. Mike Kelly
My third Major League Prospects insert card (in only four packs). No matter how many I pull, I'm still not planning on completing the set so this one (along with the other two) are available for trade!
All in all, that was a great pack! I ended up having to make some tough choices as to which cards to scan - a good problem to have!
What I want to know though, is who comes to your mind first when you hear the phrase "failed prospect"? Let me know via the comments!
