YDF, 7.30.14

1988 Donruss #31

In 1996, Lance Johnson produced one of the greatest singular seasons by a Mets player ever.  Among the eye-popping numbers were a .333 average, 50 steals, 227 hits and 21 triples--the latter two totals representing league-bests.  So, I'm a Lance Johnson guy through and through when it comes to baseball cards, regardless of what jersey he's wearing.  In 1988, Donruss and Fleer included Lance in their base sets.  Topps did not, though he did make it into that year's Topps Big checklist, strangely enough.
