1987 Topps, Curt Ford
#399 Curt Ford
Here is some new blood for the blog. It's Curt Ford, the last Cardinal player from the '85 Classic to make his debut here.
The funny thing about Curt Ford is that he probably shouldn't have taken part in the game since he didn't play in the '85 World Series. He made his Major League debut for the Cardinals in 1985 and he got into 11 regular season games for them, but he did not play in any postseason games. But, they were short on players as it was, so they probably needed all of the help that they could get.
Curt played six seasons in the Majors with the Cardinals and the Phillies. He hit .245 for his career with 7 home runs and 89 RBI. His best season was probably 1987 when he had career highs in at-bats (228), runs (32), hits (65),triples (5), home runs (3), and average (.285).
Curt's "t" that he signs in his first name doubles as his "F" in his last name.
