1991 Fleer Update - Ivan Rodriguez

Ivan on Monday and today we have number U-62 in the 1991 Fleer Update set.

Pudge appears on this card to be throwing down to second. I would say it is probably at the end of the pitcher's warm-up. The ump is out of position and it looks like a member of the security team is standing in the background. Neither would be the case during play.

The back of the card informs us that, although just 19 years old Pudge was one of the most highly touted catching prospects in baseball. This after being signed by the Rangers only three years previous at 16.
