#459 Yankee Leaders



Why this card is awesome: Because they managed to get the third and fourth best offensive Yankee players from 1987 for this card! Hooray! Never mind that Mattingly and Henderson were way more compelling. Seriously, though, I'll take a card with Dave Winfield and Willie Randolph any day.

Cool stat: The 1988 Yankees tied for the MLB lead by having four players hit at least .300 while playing at least 125 games. Can you name the 4 guys? While you're at it, can you name the three other teams to accomplish that in 1988?

Hall of Fame count: 30

Another appearance by Winfield ticks up the HOF counter.

I just got snagged by BR.com making its daily database update, which is why the cool stat link is screwed up. I'll fix it later today.

Henderson and Mattingly may have been better choices, but they were also the 1987 team card, I believe...

Great point, anthony.
