Cardboard Fenway: 1991 Fleer ProVision Mike Greenwell

Cardboard Fenway - #51. 1991 Fleer ProVision Mike Greenwell
This might be the first card ever made that tried to give a persona to the Green Monster. Easily pre-dates the silly "Wally the Green Monster" mascot by about 10 years. Also, I always found this card confusing, in that Greenwell's nickname was fairly well known, and it was not "Green Monster's Friend." It was "Gator." So I always thought that Fleer was trying to rename the Wall as "The Green Gator."
