1991 Portland Beavers (ProCards)

The Beavers were the AAA team for the Minnesota Twins. I love the notepad design. Unfortunately, the photos for this set were pretty bland. The most interesting parts were the ads in the backgrounds, with photos taken in front of either a swimmer diving into a hot dog or a giant cutout of the Marlboro man.
 Jim Dwyer looks like a grizzled old baseball man who has been coaching for decades. Actually, he was only 40 years old and had played in the majors the previous season.

  1. This is the same stadium and around the same time as when Rodney McCray literally ran through the outfield wall during a game, in an example of the sorry state of the stadium at the time. After two remodels and two name changes, it's now home to the MLS Portland Timbers and sadly cannot be configured to host a baseball game any longer.
