1991 mickey tettleton

the orioles traded mickey tettleton to the tigers in january of 1991.  here is his 1991 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
it's great that mickey's passion for froot loops is mentioned on the backs.  tettleton would set career highs in runs, hits and batting average in his first year with the tigers.  he also hit more home runs and played in more games than he had in any previous season, although he would surpass those stats in future years.  he also won his second silver slugger and hit the 100th home run of his career in 1991.

voici à vous, 1991 mickey tettleton!

  1. The Opee CHee backs on the 91s are an easier read and improvement (though i do love gray back cards)
