Repack Haiku #266 (Mike MacFarlane)

Thirteen year career
Spent mainly with the Royals
Stints with Sox and A's
1989 Topps
#479 Mike MacFarlane (RC)
I forgot he spent one year in Boston (1995) catching Tim Wakefield's knuckleballs. This is one of 1989 Topps underappreciated photos.


  1. I kinda remember Mike Mac on the Red Sox but he was definitely a Royal in my mind. Thought he was an All-Star a time or two but apparently not. Damn Sandy Alomar lol.

  2. I don't remember him or the card. I'm kind of surprised that I don't remember the card though, given how many packs of that stuff I've opened over the years. It's a neat one though!

  3. Had no idea he played in Oakland. When I saw that it was in 1998 and 1999 I wasn't surprised. I had just started teaching and was working two jobs to pay the bills back then. Didn't go to a lot of games for a few years.

  4. Great card, had it since I was a kid.
