Repack Haiku #284 (Willie Upshaw)

First Blue Jays hitter 
To reach 100 ribbies,
Coach when Bonds topped Hank
1989 Fleer #415 Willie Upshaw

Upshaw was the Giant's first base coach when Barry Bonds broke Hank Aaron's home run record, and was the first to congratulate him with a high five as he rounded the bases.


  1. He should've slapped him on the butt (leaving an asterisk), lol.

  2. Two more interesting pieces of baseball trivia. I remember there was a point in the 80's where I treasured his 79T rookie card.
