1988 Red Foley #94

Card Review: 2.5  This is my favorite Red Foley sticker to be put out during their run from '87-92.  Not that any of them are very nice, but this one at least has a bit of an unusual picture.  The photo looks like one that would have shown up on a Fleer card, as they often used the blue b.p. jersey and had empty seats as backgrounds.  It would have made for a very nice card in the 1984 or 1985 Fleer sets, though I do like the photo used in '85 Fleer.  I think this picture is from that era too.  I have no way of proving it, but I really doubt this photo is from anywhere near 1988. I'd guess this probably from '85 or '86, maybe even as early as '82 or '83.  The only other photo I've ever seen of Wallach with a black bat is on his '83 Topps card.
