Random Topps Card of the Day: 1989 Topps #387 Ryne Sandberg NL All-Star 2B

Thanks to the Topps Card Randomizer, introducing the Random Topps Card of the Day for Saturday, October 9, 2010:

  • Official Card Set Name and Card Number: 1989 Topps #387.
  • Player Name, position, team: Ryne Sandberg, All-Star Second Baseman, National League.
  • Any special information about this specific card: The popular Sandberg made his fifth consecutive appearance at the All-Star Game in 1988 and was included in Topps' All-Star subset for the following year's set. It would be his second Topps' AS card, his first since 1985. The back of the card is split into two sections. The section on the left recalls the game where he hit his 100th career home run on 06/19/1988, which helped the Cubs beat the MontrĂ©al Expos 9-3. The section on the right lists the 1988 NL League Leaders in triples, with Sandberg's 8, good enough for fourth (ahead of him were Andy Van Slyke (15), Vince Coleman (10), and the trio of Brett Butler, Juan Samuel, and Gerald Young (9), and was tied with teammate Andre Dawson, Andres Galarraga, and Ron Gant).
  • Lo-Hi Beckett value: $0.08-$0.25.
Tomorrow is Retro Sunday, the one day of the week that we feature a card from 1951-1975. The card we will feature tomorrow is: 1955 Topps #42. Come back at 1:00 PM CST to see who (or what) it is.
