1989 Topps Major League Debut #116: Dwight Smith
PHOTO: The Cubs colors look great on these cards, but this is another photo that is way, way overexposed.
STAT: Against the teams he played the most (Reds, Astros, Dodgers, Mets, Phillies, Pirates, Padres, Giants, Cardinals, and Expos) Smith did best against the Cardinals and Mets.
ANAGRAM: Dwight Smith, OF, Cubs = Smug swift bitch--doh!
Smith was part of a great duo of Cubs in 1989, coming in second to teammate Jerome Walton in the Rookie of the Year voting. He fell off quite a bit, though, producing only one other very good year in 1993. He was a useful spare part for the Braves later in his career but didn't hit well enough to stick past age 32.
