#81T Dave Parker

Somehow, Parker looks like even more of a beast on this card than he did on his regular-issue 1988 Topps card.

IMPACT FACTOR 4/10: Parker played for the Athletics for 2 seasons, 1988 and 1989. He had good regular seasons, although he had limited ABs. He hit poorly for average in both postseasons, although in 1989 he did have a few homers and a SLG of about .600.

It's the beard, clearly.

Closing in on Mackey Sasser, the best player in the whole set. ;)

Parker was awesome to watch in person. He's one of the few players I remember from watching the Bucs in the 'Burgh as a kid!

He's listed at 230. I wonder what he'd have weighed if he put the other foot on the scale.
