The first regular card in the set. Plunk was a big right-hander with the A's and for a couple of years I thought he was the team's future closer once Dennis Eckersley's career came to its conclusion in another year or two. :o (Yes, I actual thought that at the time.)
Originally a Yankee farm-hand he was sent to the A's in the big Rickey Henderson deal. Oddly enough he came back to the Yankees for a player named Rickey Henderson. Who'd a thunk it?
PItching well for the Yankees he signed with the Cleveland Indians in 1992 and from 1994-6 was at his peak in 96 with a 2.9 WAR numbers-while not great it still shows he was contributing to the Indians. He won two pennants in his career but lost with Oakland in 1988 to the Los Angeles Dodgers and in 1997 as a member of the Indians to the Florida Marlins. Traded to the Brewers in 1998 for reliever Doug Jones Plunk pitched his last game in the majors as a Brewer on October 2, 1999.
