Alright, I had hoped we would get farther into the set than #9 before we found a guy I had no recollection of, but here we are. Jay Tibbs. But looking at the card, guess what? More stripes! And a nice look at the GIGANTIC 80s Expos logo. When I was a kid, I always thought the logo was a mashed together "elb" which never made any sense to me.
In the photo, Tibbs also has a nice brand spankin' new Mizuno glove, so I'm guessing this was taken in March. That guy on the grassy knoll to the right is also creeping me out. Maybe Tibbs just stiffed him an autograph.
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!
