Fun Cards: 1988 Topps Marty Brown


Fleer and Score fooled me on infielder Marty Brown. Fleer called him a “Prospect” along with Lenny Harris in 1989, while Score included him in their “Rising Stars” box set. His best minor league numbers, though, didn’t come until the 1990s, and he never made it back to the majors after brief stops in Cincinnati in 1988 and 1989 and Baltimore in 1990.

He also turned to coaching after his playing career ended, spending time with the Buffalo Bisons and the Hiroshima Toyo Carp. More recently, he served as the Nationals’ director of Pacific Rim scouting.
