1988 brett butler

brett butler signed a free agent deal with the san francisco giants after the 1987 season.  here's his 1988 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
i wish i could say that butler stunk up the joint, but i can't.  his three years in san fran were very very good as he scored at least 100 runs in each of them (including a league leading 109 in 1988) and led the league in hits with 192 in 1990.  he received mvp votes each year, finishing 17th in '88 and '89 and 24th in '90. 

so, while i can't say that butler sucked as a giant, i am happy to say that he had his best season in 1991 when he was a dodger.  unless you consider war.  then 1988 was his best season.  dangit.

voici à vous, 1988 brett butler!
