This is a pretty decent card. Nice photo (beautiful, powerful swing with a good shot of the shin guard before it was so popular-hate the guy standing between his legs though), semi-interesting fact (at 20, Sierra was the youngest player to hit HRs from both sides of the plate in a single game). Remember when Sierra was supposed to be a superstar? What happened to that guy? He had that rare blend of power and speed, then before he turned 30 he just stopped...being...good.
Welcome to the '87 Topps blog, a card-by-card look at my first and favorite baseball card set. I'll be scanning in each card and commenting on, well, whatever I feel like. The photo, the stats, any weird memories of the player I have, etc. Enjoy!
