1992 Triple Play #224




















Card Review: 8.8 I remember really liking these cards when they came out.  I still kind of do.  It's a horrible photo, saved only by the fact that the name and number are so well displayed, which creates a kind of cool effect.  The cropping makes me a little dizzy, however.  While it was certainly different, I think it would be an easier card to look at if they hadn't gone with the slanted photo box.  Thankfully, the photo itself is squared with the card.

Fun Facts: Wallach led NL 3rd basemen in "range factor/9inn" in 1992 (whatever that is)
* Wallach was 4th in the NL in hit by pitches with 8 in 1992
*I'm pretty sure that's Gary Carter catching in this picture.  Carter also appears in Wallach's '92 Donruss (who makes Triple Play).  This picture is probably from the same at-bat.
Number of this card in my collection: 29
