#72 - Walt Terrell


On nearly every card I've seen of Terrell, he looks about 5'6". This one is no exception. And of course, it surprised me to find out he's listed at 6'2". I didn't like Topps' choice for the logo for Detroit. I much prefer the "D" to the silly tiger head that looks too much like a Bengal.

Only four batters had more than 10 RBI against Terrell: B.J. Surhoff, Harold Baines, Mel Hall and Gary Gaetti. Why is this interesting? It's not, but there's over 700 cards in this set so leave me alone.

  1. Very geeked to find this blog. I love the 1987 set, and am working on getting the entire set autographed. (Shameless plug... I have a card set blog on here too, http://grandslam1978.blogspot.com/ that deals with another set I have autographed almost in its entirety)

    I think Walt Terrell had about as un-intimidating name as any starting pitcher could have had. He was a good #3 starter, and was essentially just the Tigers replacement of Milt Wilcox.

  2. Nice post.

    I do agree with u about the banner choice.One more thing the background must be clear so that the player must be clearly visible.

    I have bookmarked this and will look for new updates.

  4. Good post. I feel the tiger looks good over the place. May be "D" would have been better, but the tiger too looks good.
