August 9, 1989

On his flickr page, Jerry Reuss has three different cards with photos from August 8, 1989. They are 1990 Fleer, 1990 Upper Deck, and 1990 KayBee.
This was another rough day for Reuss. On his 1984 Topps card, it was a day he pitched well and lost. On his 1988 Score, he did not pitch well but his team managed to win. On August 8, 1989, in Detroit, Reuss was pitching well - one run in seven innings - when he injured his hamstring pitching in the seventh inning and the score tied 1-1. An inning later, Mike Felder would make a winner out of reliever Chuck Crim when he homered off of Jack Morris, his first home run in almost two years.

  1. I just saw your comments about the cup cards - that 93 UD Karkovice is totally awesome! A cup + a bullpen phone appearance...way too cool. Nice finds man!

  2. I am assuming that since they are all from the same date - the photo's were taken by the same person
