#30T Mackey Sasser
Here it finally is...the first actual rookie card in the Rookie & Traded set. That's right...the first 29 guys were all veterans (although Kurt Stillwell was a pretty young guy at the time.)
Anyway, it's rarely a good thing to see the bottom of a guy's shoe on his baseball card. I'm willing to bet Sasser's hitting coach wasn't too thrilled with the photo.
Sasser was all over the place in 1987, in both the big leagues and minor leagues with both the Giants, Pirates, and their affiliates. And his rookie card shows him on the Mets. Go Figure.
