I’m sure that lots of pictures of Dale Sveum are out there, and 99% of them probably make him look better than the one shown above. He looks a bit like Bernie Brewer, doesn’t he? At least this was only on the back of his Upper Deck card from 1990, instead of on the front.
I ran across this card after I heard the reports that the Cubs’ managerial job has been offered to him. He seems dejected in some way, like somebody told him that he would one day be the manager of the Cubs. Whatever the case might be, he certainly needs a boost of some kind.
I’m certainly wishing him all the best here in Chicago. Hopefully, we’ll see him look a bit happier than this some day.
