1989 Spokane Indians at the mall - John Phelan

John Phelan's pro career consisted of 20 games with Spokane in 1989. In five starts and 15 relief appearances he went 2-5 with a 6.24 ERA.

Kaufman Brothers began its operations in Pittsfield, MA in 1922 as a candy wholesaler. World War II sugar shortages forced the company to diversify and so they went into the wholesale toy business, changing the name to Kay Bee Toy & Hobby in 1948. The first Kay Bee retail store opened in Connecticut in 1959, and at its peak it operated more than 1,300 stores across all 50 states. Like many retail businesses the economic difficulties of the early 2000s killed the Kay Bee brand; the last stores closed in 2009. From 1986 to 1990 Kay Bee put out small sets of baseball cards.
