100 - Cecil Fielder

Maybe I should do a new year's resolution to post double digits worth of these in the 2019.

Here's the century mark, numbering-wise. UD didn't do like Topps with having notable players in the double zero spots, but things worked out nicely here.

Better photo?: It was strange that the slugger got a fielding and running photo on his card. I guess I'll give it to the front with the fielding for fielder.

Ties to my personal collections: Former Toronto Blue Jay.

Paragraphs in wikipedia entry: 18

Wiki-facts: He is the father of Prince Fielder...the first father and son to both have 50 home run seasons in MLB.

Google it: 2 of the entries on the first page are devoted to Prince.

How was his strike shortened 1994? 28 HR and 90 RBI with a .259 average.

Birthday boy: September 21, 1963. That's also the birthday of the man who lead off 1991's Fleer release - Troy Afenir. Also born on the date was NHL journeyman Troy Loney.

Up Next: #101 - Dave Fleming
