1987 Spokane Indians at the Mall: Paul Faries

Second baseman Paul Faries was one of the few players in this set to make their way from the mall to the majors. He played in 96 games for the Padres and Giants from 1990 to 1993, hitting .201 with 0 HR and 14 RBI.

The Crescent was a department store with seven locations, including three in Spokane where the company started in 1889. The University City location opened in 1969, the same year the store hired Dolores Del Monte, Playboy's Miss March 1954, to demonstrate scarves and scarf clips, breaking all company sales records for scarf accessories. The Crescent was renamed Frederick & Nelson in 1988 and closed in 1992.
