Bo Knows Tribecards

During the Tribe-O-Matic Tourney, I received an envelope from Bo!  Now that the dust has settled a bit, let's take a look inside:

Kevin Bearse rookie Bowman card. 1990 was the only season in which he played.  He pitched in 3 games (7.3 IP) and garnered a whopping 12.91 ERA.  Hey, for $100,000, I'd happily pitch seven innings for the Tribe!  Then, we have Herb Perry's UD Prospect card. He played three seasons with the Tribe. His 2nd season was his best with a .315 AVG.  And then there was V-Mart. He played 8 seasons with the Indians, and I hated to see him get booted during the fire sale that is the Indians management strategy.
Up next, Thomas Howard on Topps Gold. Howard played most of '92 and part of '93 with the Indians. He averaged close to .250 with 55 RBIs.  In 1993, he was traded for Randy Milligan. Yeah, I don't remember Milligan either.  Cory Snyder, however, is one of the All-Time Tribe fan favorites.  He played with the Tribe for nearly five seasons. 

Albert Belle finishes up the gift from Bo! Belle (Joey to his friends) played eight seasons for the Tribe.  Much like my appreciation of Michael Jackson, I appreciate Belle's baseball career aside from his personal shenanigans.


  1. Glad you enjoyed them! I knew, at least from your wantlist, that you needed the Howard. Not sure about the others but I figured they were worth a try!

  2. I remember as a kid, for a very breif period people were nearly paying as much for Cory Snyders '85 Olympic issue as they were for McGwire's. I still got mine. Good times.
