#75T Joey Meyer
Meyer has been captured here in all his meatball glory, looking quite hefty as he lunges for the pitch. I guess Meyer was given card #75 because he had a bunch of success in the majors in 1988, at least producing a fair number of runs in a little over half a season. Meyer got only 53 more games in the majors after that, though.
The quote on the back, from an anonymous teammate, has GOT to be a dig at Meyer, suggesting that he couldn't play defense.
By the way, I once saw a Denver Zephyrs game at Mile High Stadium and saw the star marking the massive home run mentioned on the back of the card.
Best word on the back? "Monstrous."
