1984 tim foli

after two seasons in anaheim, the angels traded tim foli to the yankees in december of 1983. here's his 1984 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
foli played in 61 games for the yankees in 1984, managing to spend time at all 4 infield positions. he also achieved a statistical novelty, hitting .252 for the third year in a row. after the season, foli was traded (with steve kemp) to the pirates for dale berra and a prospect named jay buhner, paving the way for ken phelps and a funny seinfeld episode. sadly, foli didn't make the cut for inclusion in the 1985 o-pee-chee set, so this is his final o-pee-chee variation.

voici à vous, 1984 tim foli!
