Random Pittsburgh Pirates Card of the Day

Today's installment of Random Pittsburgh Pirates Card of the Day takes us all the way back to 1986. In April of this wonderful year, I was 4 years old, the Chernobyl disaster happened, and Johnny Ray was named the National League Player of the Month! We're looking at a 1986 Donruss Highlights card. You gotta love the classic horizontal striping on this beauty - I think it really highlights Johnny's scraggly beard. As for Johnny Ray, he hit a monstrous .380 in April of '86 and also knocked in 18 RBI's. Not too shabby for a second baseman. Way to go, Johnny!
