1989 Spokane Indians at the mall - Terry Rupp

First baseman Terry Rupp played in the Padres organization in 1989 and 1990. In 162 games he hit .246 with 10 HR and 81 RBI. He was later head coach at University of Tampa and University of Maryland (surviving a brain tumor in 1997) and is currently the Athletic Director at Jesuit High School in Tampa. A fuller account of his career can be found at The Greatest 21 Days.

Sheer Madness was the mall's lingerie store. Too bad they went so conservative on the photo; a little more daring and you would have had one of the greatest cards of all time.
