1991 Bowman - Ivan Rodriguez

Ivan on Monday this week features #272 in the 1991 Bowman set.

Here we see Pudge just after being called up to the big leagues on his wedding day. He evidently has not started playing in the 88 games he would appear in in 1991. The back of the card has few stats but does inform us of his rapid rise through the minors. According to Bowman Ivan made his professional debut at Gastonia in 1989 and played at Charlotte at 1990. By the end of the 1991 season he would be in the bigs and there would be no looking back.
