1988 bob dernier

bob dernier returned to philadelphia as a free agent in 1988 after spending a few seasons with the cubs.  here is his 1988 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
dernier hit .289 in his return to philadelphia, but just .171 in 1989, his final year in the majors.  he managed to hit one home run in each of his final two seasons, and they were literally bookends to his career.  his only round-tripper in 1988 was a lead-off shot on the road, the sixth lead-off homer of his career.  his last home run, hit on 5/15/89, was an inside the park walk-off job against the padres.

voici à vous, 1988 bob dernier!
