Yesterday I asked about the least memorable players to get 00 numbers. I looked through a few checklists--just a sample--and here's a nominee: in 1987, Dave Bregman gets 700! Gary Carter, Tony Gwynn, Ozzie Smith, and Tim Raines were all more or less in their primes and had never gotten a 00 number, but Dave Bregman gets the call. Yeesh.
Ozzie, Yaz, and Yount are the biggest shocks of the day. Oh... I guess Ryan only having four appearances is surprising as well. I'm not too surprised at Mo only making one "00" appearance. He's hands down the greatest reliever... but he's a reliever.P.S. Never took the time to appreciate that 1982 Topps Winfield. That's a great looking card.
"That's just Topps being Topps!"
Sutton is overrated.
I'm really surprised that Frank Thomas wasn't on more. He was in that stratosphere with Griffey Jr. as far as cards went in the 90s. Maybe they were mad because he had a product contract with Leaf. Also wonder how many of these guys were #1 instead of the round number. Oooopsss...
