1990 carmelo martinez

carmelo martinez signed with the phillies as a free agent a few days before the padres acquired fred lynn and joe carter. i don't think carmelo was in their plans for 1990. here's his 1990 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
as a phillie, martinez hit .242 with 8 homers and 31 rbi in 71 games before he was traded to the pirates in august. with pittsburgh, martinez hit 2 more home runs, the first of which came against the phillies. he was 2 for 8 with 2 doubles and 2 rbi for the pirates in the 1990 nlcs against the reds.

voici à vous, 1990 carmelo martinez!

  1. Love this blog. The one thing that gets me is how the 1990 topps front is more colorful and the opeechee back is more readable. Too bad they didn't work it onto on set or the other.
