1989 mike aldrete

mike aldrete was traded from the giants to the expos in december of 1988.  here's his 1989 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
as a result of the trade, aldrete missed out on the giants' run to the world series in 1989.  he would do ok, though, despite bouncing around to 6 teams in 7 seasons, as he wound up with the yankees for the last half of the 1996 season, and was on their post-season roster when they won the world series. 

as an expo, however, aldrete hit only .221 in 1989 and .242 in 1990 and probably had expos fans intoning his 'berman' nickname - mike 'enough' aldrete.

voici à vous, 1989 mike aldrete!
