Actual Stats on the Back: 1985 Fleer

1985 Fleer #24 Lou Whitaker



And I thought I had nothing to say about 1984 Fleer Stat backs!

Red and black replace blue in 1985. Same fonts, same placement of info, same stats, same size picture, same PCT, blah, blah, blah.

Let's check out those tidbits:
1. 6 runs and 2 doubles in '84 World Series (Trammell was "awesomer" in that series and won the MVP)
2. started career at the hot corner (who doesn't?)
3. Tiger's 5th pick (Only 3 of the Tigers' 26 picks in 1975 ever made the majors -Whitaker, Jason Thompson, and Bruce Berenyi )
4. BONAFIDE STATISTICAL NUGGET!!! .988 fielding average in 1982 (according to Baseball Reference, Sweet Lou had his best fielding years in 1981 and 1982, He won gold gloves from 1983-1985)

Do you remember this?
