1992 Leaf Bert Blyleven

California Angels CTNW Favorites #4

After posting an ERA of 5.24 in 1990, Bert Blyleven missed the entire 1991 season due to rotator cuff surgery. In 1992 every major card company, except Topps, wrote the future Hall of Famer off. Despite returning for the 1992 season, he wasn't even included in update sets. Topps and Score both printed cards of Blyleven for their 1993 sets. For his part, Blyleven tried out for the Minnesota Twins in the spring of '93 but was cut before the start of the season.
