1988 Topps 6

#433 Bill Pecota

I got this card signed at a card show in Salina in the late 80's. Sounds like a kick-ass show, huh? I didn't have a Bill Pecota card (or knew who he was), so I picked one up at the show. Bill was at the Willie Wilson Classic this past spring, but I didn't see him to get some cards signed then. So, this is the only Pecota card.

The back of the card lists him as a 3B. But, in '87, he played second 15 times, third 17 times, and short 36 times. I wonder why Topps picked third. They should have pulled a Greg Pryor (3B-SS-2B)
