1989 Topps Major League Debut #35: Junior Felix
See Name Chain #1.
PHOTO: This is a fine photo of Felix, but I would have preferred one showing his wide open batting stance, the most open I can recall of any player.
STAT: Junior Felix is currently 6th on the list of most strikeouts by a player with 600 or fewer games played. And two guys ahead of him, Howard and Pena, will end up with more than 600 games.
Felix was a decent offensive player but he struck out too much. He was taken by Florida in the expansion draft and played so poorly that he got released part way through their inaugural season. Oops.
