Seitzer began the 1987 season as the Royals starting first baseman, but traded places with George Brett eventually. He went on to have a remarkable rookie year, .323/15/83 with 207 hits. Any other year and he probably would have been awarded the AL Rookie of the Year, but '87 was the year of McGwire. For ten years he was a fairly productive hitter and an adequate fielder.
The number 10 patch on his sleeve is for the late Dick Howser, manager of the Royals between 1981 and 1986. He fell ill before the 1986 All Star game, though he still managed the game to an AL victor, but he never managed again. It was discovered that the had a brain tumor and after surgery he attempted to comeback in 1987, but died during spring training.
Seitzer was the hitting coach for the Diamondbacks in 2006 and it looks like he'll be the hitting coach in KC this year.
This is a very, very blue card. It rivals that very blue Bo Jackson card in '88 Topps. We've got a blue border, blue uniform, guy in blue sitting in front of an absolutely terrifying blurry blue mascot.
Look at that thing... just look at it.
It requires four virgins a day (breakfast, lunch, an afternoon snack and dinner) or it jumps the wall and eats everyone on the field...
