Brett Butler 1993 Studio

Hobbies are golf and chasing his kids: Butler recently participated in a golf tournament to benefit the Operation Renewed Hope Foundation, which aims to end veteran homelessness.
At the time this card was published Butler’s four children ranged in age from 5 to 11. Daughter Stefanie Butler is now an actress who has been on several TV shows, including last year’s Stranger Things.

Favorite sports announcer is Vin Scully: Scully was the Dodgers announcer during Butler’s career there, and for several decades before and after.

Favorite player as a kid was Willie Mays: Butler grew up a Giants fan in San Francisco and later got to play for his hometown team.

Might have been an actor if he hadn’t been an athlete: Butler has one acting credit, in the 1991 Back to the Future animated series. I did not know there was such a thing – I will have to check it out!

Pet peeve is laziness: Like many small, scrappy players, Butler had a reputation for working hard.

Where he is now: Baserunning/outfield coach for the Miami Marlins.

  1. Studio was always a favorite for me. Like this Butler, the card backs could be an entertaining read. I came across one of these recently and wondered what Brett was up to.
