now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
jackson responded to the trade by winning 23 games for the reds with a 2.73 era and 15 complete games, including back-to-back 2-hitters against the phillies in early may. only orel hershiser's monster season kept jackson from winning the cy young award. jackson would go on to win his second world series championship with the reds in 1990, although he never again matched his 1988 performance.

voici à vous, 1988 danny jackson!
