To celebrate, for the next 24 hours The Baseball Card Blog will be posting 100 cards either featuring Fenway Park, a member of the Red Sox, or both. That's a new card posted every 14.4 minutes.
We'll start things off with this great 1987 Fleer card of Red Sox lefty Bruce Hurst. Fenway has not been used as a baseball-card backdrop as often as other stadia (most notably old Yankee Stadium). I'm sure there are a few reasons, most notably that the Topps photographers were based in New York City. But you know... maybe that gigantic centerfield billboard for cigarettes didn't exactly help Fenway's cause, either.
