1988 Topps #24T
1988 Topps Appreciation:  This is the first card featured from the 1988 Topps Traded set in this season's series preview posts.  Sil Campusano played 73 games for the '88 Blue Jays, hitting .218 with two home runs and 12 RBIs.  The Phillies must have liked what they saw, as they selected Campusano in the Rule V draft following the 1989 season.  In parts of two seasons with the Phillies in 1990 and 1991, Campusano hit .183 (22 for 120).  He was actually their opening day center fielder in 1990 as a result of the injured Lenny Dykstra missing the start of the season.
I'm not sure why, but I felt the need to post Campusano's 1990 Classic Yellow card back in a June 2009 post with a brief write-up of Campusano's short time with the Phillies.
