Airbrushed Fridays: 1990 Topps Traded #13T
Three days left in the season. Time to be geeked!
Who is he? Glenn Braggs was an outfielder who came up with the Milwaukee Brewers back in their American League days. Braggs was a second round pick in 1983 and showed flashes of power in his years with the Brew Crew, though he never broke out as a star player. Don't feel too sorry for the man, however. In addition to playing baseball professionally for a living for a number of years at the highest level, he also married a member of En Vogue. En Vogue!
How did he get here? The charmed life of Glenn Braggs took a turn in 1990 when he was part of a four player midseason deal involving the Cincinnati Reds. It was a turn for the better, as the Reds would go on to shock the juggernaut that was the Oakland A's with a World Series sweep that year. Braggs would go on to play for the Reds through 1992 before taking his talents to Japan for several more years.
Repeat offender? No
