Did you know San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy has more World Series rings than triples? Yep. Three rings and two triples.

If you didn’t, you will after this week’s episode of Opening 25-Year-Old Baseball Cards, where Bochy pops open some 1992 Fleer with yours truly. It turns out that he pulled the left fielder who let one of those two career triples happen. And Bochy has a great story about it.
If you’re new to this series, here’s what you need to know: These cards were bought in 1992 by my grandma, most likely from the Costco in Newark, Calif., and they’ve sitting around unopened ever since. I pulled them out of my garage recently and decided it would be fun to open them with baseball people — to see what stories ensue and what kind of trades can be made.
In this week’s episode, Bochy also pulls a card of newly elected Hall of Farmer Tim Raines and I do my best to get it away from him. Turns out, I have just the right Giants pitcher to get the trade done.
