now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
esasky's career likely suffered from pete rose's pursuit of ty cobb's all time hit record, as he was often benched to make room for rose in the lineup. as such, he averaged only 108 games a season in his 6 years with the reds. with the bosox in 1989, however, esasky played in 154 games, hit 30 home runs and drove in 108, all career highs. he finished 18th in the mvp voting that season and signed a big free agent deal with the braves.

voici à vous, 1989 nick esasky!
