1990 Bowman, Thomas Howard

#212 Thomas Howard

It's late and I'm tired, so I'm only going to do one Padres card and then call it a night. I'll try to get three cards on here tomorrow to make up for it.

Thanks to Rod, I finally have a 1990 Bowman card signed. This one is of the well-traveled, light hitting outfielder, Thomas Howard. Howard played for six teams in his eleven season career. The most games that he played was 121, but he only got 360 at-bats that year. He never hit more than six home runs and wasn't a very good base-stealer, stealing only 66 bases in 107 attempts. He never walked a lot, but he didn't strikeout a lot, either. He was basically your everyday fourth outfielder and he was good enough at it to last as long as he did.
