1991 Topps #220






















Card Review: 8.7  A solid but unspectacular card for the Topps base card Wallach issue of 1991.  I consider 1991 the last "real" Topps set, as from 1957-1991 the basic design was unchanged.  In 1992 they switched to white card board stock, in 1993 they went glossy on the back, and by 1995 the basic card was lost forever.

Fun Facts: in 1991 Wallach was hit by 6 pitches, good for 6th in the NL
* Wallach led all NL third basemen in fielding percentage in 1991
* On May 4, 1991, Wallach went 1/3 with 4 walks in a 13 inning 6-5 loss to the Padres
* This card # is 220.  Topps reserved card #'s ending in zero for the game's best players

Number of this card in my collection: 33
