No, that's not a stain running down Sullivan's leg, it's a stain on the card. So that's why I'm not commenting on it. Even though I just did. This is a pretty boring shot, as the five people in the stands clearly understand.
Sullivan did absolutely nothing in his career. The rumor was (completely justified) that he was only on the Sox because his father was Haywood Sullivan, who was a part owner of the team in those days. His stats bear that out completely. 397 career PAs with an OPS+ of 32.
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!
