1991 Batavia Clippers (Classic Best)

It looks like the Classic and Best companies must have merged in 1991, because instead of Best cards, you get Classic Best cards for the next couple of years. The set is similar to the main Classic Best set, though with a black line at the bottom with the player's info. The pics in the set are pretty generic and are all against the same background.
For most of his twelve-year pro baseball career, whenever Matt Whisenant was sitting in the bullpen and heard a call to "Get Whisenant up," it referred to him.
 Except for his year in Batavia, where there was a pitcher named John Whisonant.
Chipper the Clipper really needs a bigger shirt.
