1992 bobby bonilla

bobby bonilla signed with the mets as a free agent after the 1991 season.  here is his 1992 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
bonilla had finished in the top 3 of the nl mvp vote the previous two seasons, so his 19/70/.249 line in 1992 was a disappointment to mets fans, especially since he was the highest paid player in the league.  he hit two home runs in a game once (the second game of the season) and also had a walk-off homer against rob dibble and the reds late in the season.  bobby bo bounced back in 1993 to hit 34 homers, but didn't reach the postseason with the mets until 1999, in his second tour of duty with them in which he was a part-time player.

voici à vous, 1992 bobby bonilla!
