Dave Winfield – 1989 Topps

October 8, 2010

“C-O-O-L!”

Just back from a conference, and getting ready to plow through an RFP and get ready for a client site visit next week.

I had to post this. The expression on Dave’s face. The fact that he’s wearing a Yankees jacket and hat but not his uniform (unless it was hidden under the jacket and unbuttoned). The time frame of this picture, at the end of Winfield’s Yankees career when he’s been through almost all of the crapola the Boss threw at him.

Also, this was taken before or during his last year of excellence. OPS+ of 159. WAR of 5.3.

Unfortunately, he didn’t play in 1989 thanks to back issues. He had a few decent seasons but 1988 was his last one.

But he’s still cool…
