1991 rosario rodriguez

the pirates picked up rosario rodriguez on waivers from the reds during the 1990 offseason.  here is his 1991 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
rodriguez has the unusual distinction (at least i think it's fairly unusual) of making his final major league appearance in a post season game.  he pitched one inning of relief for the pirates in the 1991 nlcs against the braves, giving up a three-run home run to sid bream in game 3.  he had saved 6 games for the pirates during the regular season, but had an era of 4.11.
voici à vous, 1991 rosario rodriguez!
