WHY I LIKE IT
- An interesting card because Bill Lee wanted to become a forest ranger. But when it came time to choose a college, he opted to go to a school specializing in baseball instead of forestry. Plus, his family had ties to USC, which had one of the country's best baseball program's headed up by Manager Rod Dedeaux.
- The back's great, with six little adorable bears wearing baseball gloves who apparently found a box of matches somewhere on the field. Looks like they interrupted Smokey doing some groundskeeping.
WHAT'S THE STORY?
- The United States Department of Agriculture was the primary sponsor of the 12-card set, featuring USC players who made it to the majors. It was issued during a series between the Trojans and Stanford on Feb. 23-25, 1990.
HOW I ACQUIRED IT
- Saw it on COMC for a couple dollars during the Black Friday weekend and grabbed it.
