1989 Topps Major League Debut #37: Steve Finley
PHOTO: Not a bad shot, even if it does make Finley look like he has a cromagnon head.
STAT: Just 6 guys have 300 career homers and 300 career steals. Finley is one. How many of the other 5 can you get?
Finley is somewhat overrated by his longevity and the fact that he put up a few big HR seasons late in his career. In truth, he was a reasonably above average offensive player, good but not great, and solid defensively. He did it for many, many years, having just retired after the 2007 season.
