1990 Bowman, Bill Pecota
#377 Bill Pecota
Here is the next card from Bill Pecota that I got signed at Royals Fanfest last month. This one is on his 1990 Bowman card. This is only the third card that I have signed from the set. One of the other signed cards from the set was obtained at Royals Fanfest five years ago and the other was given to me by another blogger. For whatever reason, I do not have a lot of cards from this set. This was before Bowman became all about the rookie and was high end. I guess I didn't buy too much of it because I was still a little weary after the '89 set came out slightly bigger than a normal card.
Bill played for the Royals for six seasons. During that time, he played ever single position on the field, including pitcher and catcher (not in the same game, though). He got a majority of his playing time at third, though.
Bill was a .249 career hitter in his nine seasons in the Majors. His best season was his final year in Kansas City in 1991. That season, he played in 125 games and hit .286 with 23 doubles, 6 home runs, 53 runs, 45 RBI, and 16 stolen bases- all career highs except for average.
