I don't know what anyone else thinks, but this doesn't look like LaRussa to me. The stubble, the lack of glasses...just looks like a different guy. And what the heck is he looking at? Is someone injecting someone with something?
Few managers have had as much success for as long a period of time as LaRussa. (And no one has aged less visibly.) He's won two World Series (one in each league), 5 pennants, topped 100 wins 4 times, 90 wins 11 times, and has won a division with three different teams (White Sox, As, Cards). Not too bad.
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!
Oh, and if you haven't seen it, check out the definitive card-by-card blog here. -BloggerDK
