1990 Topps Minis #52: Mitch Williams

We have another installment today of the 1990 Topps Mini League Leaders set, with card #52, Mitch Williams of the Chicago Cubs.
#52, Mitch Williams.
Williams was a premier reliever for a while, starting with the Rangers from 1986-1988, then with the Cubs from 1989-1990.  He then was with the Phillies 1991-1993.  In Philadelphia he became a scapegoat for the Phillies' 1993 World Series loss to the Blue Jays, famously giving up Joe Carter's series-ending home run.  He then played a bit more, with the Astros, Angels, and Royals.
Mitch Williams card back.
Williams made his way into the League Leaders set by placing second in saves in 1989 with 36.  He would finish his career with 192 saves.

Thanks for reading!
