1988 O-Pee-Chee #311 Derek Bell
Why this card is awesome: Because of that very cool, retro-looking v-neck Blue Jays shirt he's wearing. Who knows more about that uni?
Bell completes our tetrad of the top 4 draftees for the two Canadian teams, and all 4 made the big leagues! Very nice. This also completes all the OPC cards I'll be showing on this blog, although stay tuned for the giveaway of the entire OPC set.
Cool stat: In 1996, Bell had the 5th-lowest slugging percentage of all-time for a season with at least 110 RBIs. Also, for players with at least 950 career strikeouts, Bell has the 14th fewest walks. Also, in 1993, he nearly had more homers (21) than walks (23.)
