No write ups at all. Nothing but stats broken down by team.
With inter-league play the norm in today's MLB, these card backs would be impossible to create (or the printing would be so small that nobody could read it without a magnifying glass).
Today's 9 cards were easy to break up into three rows of three. Posed shots, posed shots with a bat, and game action shots.
Top row, posed shots:
The most interesting character on this line is Bell, who was the main cog in the Jays offense in the late 80's. George's power numbers were down a bit in 1989 but a .297/18/104 line isn't too shabby.
Middle row, posed with bat shots:
Glenallen Hill never really got a chance in Toronto to play full time. He wound up being part of a trade package in 1991 with Mark Whiten and Denis Boucher (a very big price that turned out to be) for the rental of Tom Candiotti and Turner Ward. The Jays did end up winning the division in '91, but were knocked out in 5 games by the Twins in the ALCS.
Bottom row, game action shots:
I decided to take a look at the Junior Felix statistics, and was surprised to find out that he was out of MLB at age 26. It makes me wonder what happened, because his final season in 1994 he hit .306 with 13 HR and 49 RBI in only 86 games. He was only 26 at the time, so I wonder why he wound up out of baseball so soon.
With the rows out of the way, here's the final product:
