Cliff was a heck of a hitter! He could really mash the ball. I loved his swing. He had a short compact swing, but when he let go of the bat with his right hand the momentum of his swing would bring the bat all the way behind him, and when he finished his swing it looked like he was sitting on the bat handle. He had very good bat control, and didn't strike out much for a free swinger. I once read where Bill James said Johnson would have hit 500 home runs in the majors if the Astros didn't waste the first 10-11 years of his career trying to turn him into a catcher. After watching Johnson throughout his career, I would have to agree with Bill James on that assessment.
Awesme success! Did you also include Johnson's $5 signing fee per card?
