#42T Willie Upshaw
Still more background comments, as here we see about two-thirds of the Indians second-baseman for 1988, Julio Franco (one of my favorite players.)
The copy on the back is a bit odd....Upshaw walked a decent amount, but I wouldn't go so far as to say he had "an eye for walks." He never finished in the top 10 in walks in any season, and he finished 59th (out of 153) in walks for players with 4500 to 5000 career plate appearances.
