In 1993, Henderson played for both the Oakland A’s and the Blue Jays. He was traded by the A’s to the Jays for pitcher Steve Karsay and a player to be named later. Henderson was awful for the Jays, and after becoming a free agent returned to Oakland. So, this card shows him during his short and not so productive stint with the Jays. The upside is that he won a World Series ring with Toronto. Fortunately for Rickey, he’d go on to play until 2003 and was fairly productive for a few more seasons.
While this Upper Deck base card isn’t really close to a hallmark card for Rickey, it’s a card that I’m not sure that I have. Even if I did, the price I paid in Listia credits was very low, and you can’t ever go wrong with Hall of Famers.
