1989 Topps Major League Debut #57: Greg Hibbard
PHOTO: This is another fairly rare card from this set with good color unity. Lots of reds and blues.
STAT: Among pitchers throwing at least 750 innings from 1989 to 1994, Hibbard cracks the top 25 for best BB/9 rate.
Hibbard started his career with two strong seasons but fell off to a little below average that. He was selected by the Marlins in the expansion draft but was traded to the Cubs that same off-season for Gary Scott and Alex Arias, the latter of whom became a useful player for Florida.
