Red Sox With No Cards: 1992

In this series I take a look at players who played for the Boston Red Sox but, for some reason, never had a Major League card produced of them with the team.

I have decided there is an easier way to do this.  I figured I would go year by year starting in 1991, which was the first year that I started watching the Red Sox.  Maybe some other time I will start to go backwards from there.  Well, there were no players without cards in 1991, so that brings us to just one player in 1992:

The younger brother of longtime Red Sox second-baseman Marty Barrett, Tom also played second base.  He was originally drafted by the Yankees but made his Major League debut with the Phillies and played in 50 games over parts of two seasons.  He did not play in the Majors at all in 1990 and 1991 but re-appeared in 1992 with the Red Sox.  This was two years after Marty made his last appearance in Boston.  Tom made it into just four games without getting a hit in three at-bats.  He did walk twice and scored a run.  He had four assists and three putouts in the field.  Barrett does have a couple of minor league cards with the Red Sox organization but no Major League cards.
