He'll never make it . . .
Ricky Jordan played in 69 games for the 1988 Phillies, hitting .308 with 11 home runs and 43 RBI. My Dad predicted he would never make it as a Major Leaguer, and it became a running joke with us over Ricky's 8 years in the Majors.
Ricky's rookie card appeared in the 1989 Topps set, but I always felt he should have had a 1988 Topps card. Now he does.
