Game-winning squeeze

I got Mike Felder's 1992 Upper Deck card recently, and it looked familiar.

Specifically, it looks almost exactly like his 1992 Topps card!

When I saw this, I just thought the card companies were getting lazy. However, I looked up the Giants Turn Back the Clock Day from 1991, and it turns out it was no ordinary bunt. The day was June 23, 1991, and Felder won the game with a pinch-hit squeeze bunt in the bottom of the ninth! That was one of the season highlights for the Giants that year, and that must have been a fun card for Giant fans to get in 1992.
