1990 kevin bass

kevin bass signed with the giants as a free agent after the 1989 season.  here's his 1990 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
bass was originally acquired by the astros in the don sutton trade, which may be a factoid that only i find interesting.  anyway, bass missed out on the brew crew's world series appearance that year and joined the giants the year after they played in the fall classic (he did get to the nlcs with the astros in 1986). 

bass struggled for the giants in 1990 and appeared in only 61 games.  he rebounded in 1991 to play in 124 games but continued to underperform at the plate, hitting just .233.  the giants sent bass to the mets during the 1992 season, and he later rejoined the astros as a free agent.
voici à vous, 1990 kevin bass!
