1986 Topps Stickers #82

Card Review: 4.5  About the best thing I can say about this card is that it's a nice photo of Wallach. Though I'm not sure the photo is actually from the '85 season.  If it is, it's the only one I've ever seen of Wallach wearing that style stirrup from '85.  He wore his socks like that (the way they should be worn) through '84.  In '85 he switched to the socks that look like a wide-even stripe from the shoe to the pants, before getting really lazy in '89 and just going with the long pants down to the ankles.

I love the traditional style stirrups and think they should be mandated, though given that many of today's players don't even know how to properly bend the bill of their caps, it's unlikely to happen.

Number of this card in my collection: 1
