Snapshots from Lynn Westland-Taylor’s scrapbooks

You might have seen these on the Major League “Wild Thing Edition” DVD’s photo gallery but not even realized what they were.

But thanks to Mrs. Taylor’s scrapbook, we’ve gotten a look at a couple of scenes that were cut from the documentary on my 1988 Cleveland Indians — footage lost forever to the cutting room floor.

Above is a snapshot from Jake and Lynn‘s wedding at All Saints on Euclid after the season. Our team saluted the happy couple on their way out of the church. (Interesting note for the game-used baseball bat collectors — my team only used Louisville Sluggers in the movie but you can see some Rawlings bats above.)

Do you have these magazines? I need copies …

For all of the things I saved through the years, I never did latch onto copies of People and Sports Illustrated where my guys appeared on the covers.

“Wild Thing” appeared on the Sept. 18, 1988, cover of People, while several of us appeared on a SI cover that fall, too.

Have one? E-mail me…

Exclusive Discovery: The long lost 1990 Upper Deck Major League cards

1990UDparkman2 copy

Hot off the heels of yesterday’s landmark — some might say exclusive (but it’s much, much bigger than that) — find, we have gotten our hands on the cards that were intended to be in the 1990 Upper Deck baseball set.

These feature the stars of Major League II — a few guys you have heard of and, based on the box office attendance, some guys you haven’t.

(We won’t mention that the sequel came in 1994 — Major League II documents my squad’s second pennant-winning season, which is firmly 1989.)

Exclusive first look world premiere: The 1989 Upper Deck cards you’ll never, ever find anywhere other than right here

1989vaughn5 copy

We’ve done some nosing around and have found this exclusive first look world premiere scoop of all scoops — the 14 cards pulled at the last second from the 1989 Upper Deck baseball card set. (Including a card of yours truly, Lou Brown.)

You see, Upper Deck had better things to do in 1989 than include a real Star Rookie named Ricky Vaughn in its inaugural baseball card set. (They instead opted for some bum named Ken Griffey Jr. for card No. 1.)

And they made some other last-second changes to the set — opting to not include managers, bench coaches, announcers and even some Major Leaguers in the 700-card first series.

My team was very, very disappointed. However, after 20 years these “missing”  cards have been discovered and can only be found here on my blog.

Is that you, Tolbert?

tolbertSure, Major League was 20 years ago, but this Tolbert is the only Tolbert in MLB history.

Collectors tell me that the Rookie Card logo has resulted in some old rookies appearing on baseball cards these days, but this just might take the cake.

Maybe Jake Taylor was talking to his daddy… I just don’t know.

At least he’s not a Yankee.

What if Jake Taylor had a 1989 Donruss baseball card?

pg2-mem-front-taylor

Jake Taylor was the glue that held my Indians together in 1988, and I don’t care what they say about his knees.

This guy is a star even if he was distracted chasing that former Olympic swimmer all around Cleveland.

He got the job done when it matters — and he gets my respect for leading the team in my absence in Major League II.
