1990 Topps Minis #16: Bo Jackson

We are continuing again with our trip through the 1990 Topps Minis set, today taking on card #16, Bo Jackson.
Bo Jackson.
What is there to say about Bo Jackson?  He seemed like the biggest deal in baseball, until a football injury in 1991, and then all of a sudden he wasn't any more.  He played 23 games for the White Sox in 1991, and it was over, more or less.  He did come back for part of the 1993 and 1994 seasons, but the mystique and hype were gone.
Bo Jackson card back.
This card, though, captures Bo in his baseball prime.  He only had one 30-home run season, and it was 1989, when he placed fourth in the AL with 32 home runs.  He also tied for fourth with 105 RBI, and as the card back goes on to say, he was sixth in slugging at .495 and tied for 10th in runs with 86.

Next Monday we continue our series on this Topps Mini League Leaders set, still in Kansas City, with Bret Saberhagen.  Thanks for reading!
