1993 Fleer, Mike Gallego
#648 Mike Gallego
This is the third and final card that I got signed by the A's third base coach during Spring Training this year. The first two cards were both A's cards and you can see the first one here and the second one here.
Mike signed with the Yankees prior to the 1992 season. He played with them for three seasons. For two of the three seasons, he was either a part time player or was hurt. In 1993, though, he had one of his most productive seasons of his career. That season, he had career-highs in average (.278), RBI (54) and doubles (20). In his three seasons in the Bronx, Mike hit .262 with 19 home runs and 109 RBI.
After his time with the Yankees, Mike played one more year with Oakland before spending his final two seasons with the Cardinals. Mike finished his career a .239 hitter with 42 home runs and 282 RBI.
