1988 Topps – Jake Blackwood
Jake had a monster game in a losing effort against the Silverhawks in game one of a doubleheader. He started off with a home run, and added a double and a triple before it was all over. He did well in his only three trips to the plate, and I was left to wonder if he could have hit for the cycle if the full nine innings were played.
This picture was taken as Jake was pulling up at second after a double. For some reason looking at the picture I knew that it should be on a card. I put all the Tincap players on the ’88 Topps card because the colors looked to be a perfect match for their uniforms.
