1990 Topps Minis #2: Phil Bradley

We're continuing our look at the 1990 Topps Mini League Leader set.  I'll be showing the whole set, one card at a time, on Mondays and Wednesdays.  Today's card is #2, Phil Bradley, then of the Baltimore Orioles.
Phil Bradley.
Bradley played in the majors between 1983 and 1990.  I remember him mainly with the Mariners, but also briefly with the Phillies.  He was with the Mariners 1983 through 1987, then was traded to the Phillies in part for pitcher Michael Jackson and Glenn Wilson.  He played with the Phillies all of 1988, then was traded to the Orioles in part for Ken Howell.  He was with the Orioles all of 1989 and part of 1990, and was traded mid-season in 1990 to the White Sox for Ron Kittle.  He then played briefly in Japan.
Phil Bradley card back.
Bradley made his way into this 1990 Topps Mini League Leaders set by hitting 10 triples in 1989, which was enough for third place in the AL.  He batted .277 on the season, with 20 stolen bases and 55 RBI.  His best season looks like it was 1985, when he hit .300, had a career-high 26 home runs and 88 RBI, stole 22 bases, and was an All-Star.

Up next (on Monday): Wade Boggs, of the Red Sox.  Thanks for reading!
