#32T Rick Dempsey
Again, the back of the card says Dempsey is #24, but the front of the card tells us that's bullshit.
I just noticed that Dempsey did not have an 88 Topps Card or 88 Topps Traded card. I wonder why. He played in 60 games in 1987 and was a long-time veteran. That was an odd decision.
So here's a stat for you: for catchers with at least 5000 career PAs, Dempsey had the 2nd-fewest RBI. Can you guess who was first? Probably not.
Third catcher card in a row!
