Fun Cards: 1991 Topps Ron Oester
Despite providing a solid bat off the bench for the World Champion Cincinnati Reds in 1990, second baseman Ron Oester was omitted from the 1991 Topps baseball card set; Donruss, Fleer, Score, and Upper Deck all found room for Oester. He batted .299 in 154 at-bats in 1990, his last season in the majors.
He saw limited playing time during the regular season, but Oester was a part of the Reds’ postseason roster, going 1-for-3 in the NLCS against the Pittsburgh Pirates. That hit came in the sixth game, after coming into the game during a double switch that saw Norm Charlton replace Danny Jackson on the mound. In the bottom of the seventh inning, Oester singled off Pirates pitcher Zane Smith, then scored on a Luis Quinones single.
