1992 andres galarraga

the 'big cat', andres galarraga, was traded in november of 1991 by the expos to the cardinals. here's his 1992 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:

and the topps back:
in his lone season with the cardinals, galarraga played in 95 games and hit 10 homers with 39 rbi. it was a down year for galarraga, and perhaps the lone highlight of the season was the grand slam he hit off of john wetteland when he returned to montreal in august. after the season was over, he was granted free agency and ultimately signed with the rockies. to say his career enjoyed a resurgence as a result is an understatement.

voici à vous, 1992 andres galarraga!
