1992 jeff schaefer

jeff schaefer had played in 84 games for the mariners in 1991, his third season in the major leagues.  topps didn't include him in their 1992 set, but o-pee-chee did as they replaced the all star cards with commons, creating a slew of checklst variations.  here is his 1992 o-pee-chee card:
here's the o-pee-chee back:
here's the topps card schaefer replaced in the o-pee-chee set:
and the topps back:
schaefer hit just .114 for the mariners in limited action in 1992.  he spent 1993 in the indians' organization  and had a short stint in the orioles' fold before resurfacing with the a's in 1994.  he played in 6 games for the a's, getting 1 hit in 8 at bats.  that hit came in his last major league at bat which occurred in chicago against the white sox - the same setting for both of schaefer's career home runs.
voici à vous, 1992 jeff schaefer!
