1994 Score Select Baseball Series 2

Got back from out of town while piles of packs. My first pack to open is 1994 Select baseball series 2. It's another brand from Pinnacle/Score at the time with 12 cards per pack. The first card....

313 - Harold Reynolds - in an Angels uniform. 1994 was his last season in the majors.

390 - Rich Becker - rookie prospect cards are horizontal. Becker had a journeyman year.

336 - Jody Reed - spent one season with the Brewers.

391 - Billy Taylor - talk about perseverance. Drafted in 1980 he spent 13 years in the minors before making it in 1994. He didn't play in 1995, but came back in 1996 playing til 2001.

403 - Joey Hamilton - made his debut 1994 but never lived up expectations.
