1992 wally joyner

wally joyner signed as a free agent with the royals in december of 1991. here's his 1992 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
wally world parlayed a big contract year (21/96/.301) into a big contract and quickly faltered. his first year in kansas city saw his home run total fall to 9, and his average tumble all the way to .269, both perilously close to his career lows at the time. the next three years however, he kept his average up near or over .300, and he always fielded his position well, so maybe the royals didn't lose out on their investment too much. after the 1995 season, the royals moved him to san diego for which i am grateful because it made this card possible.

voici à vous, 1992 wally joyner!
