#284 Larry Bowa



Why this card is awesome: Because if you like the combo of brown & orange (which I do) then this card is for you.

Cool stat: Normally I comment on the team for manager cards, but I wanted to give you a little Larry Bowa knowledge. For a guy with a career OPS+ of 71, he had a lot of big hits. For example, he had 8 walk-off plate appearances. I especially like the last one, a bunt single with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 14th!

I wonder if there's ever been a smaller guy with a bigger temper than Bowa?

Earl Weaver may have been shorter than Bowa.

I don't think I've ever seen this card before. Hopefully it's in one of the stacks of 1988 Topps I'm getting in the mail soon.
