here we are on day 3 of 'dave lapoint days'!

dave lapoint signed a contract with the cardinals prior to the 1987 season. here's his 1987 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
lapoint made just 6 appearances (including 2 starts) with the cardinals before he was traded to the white sox. he pitched a lot better in chicago as he lowered his era from 6.75 at the time of the trade to 3.56 overall by way of a 2.94 era with the white sox. he was 6-3 in chicago and 7-4 overall, and the white sox decided to keep him around for 1988, meaning that there would be no 1988 o-pee-chee variation for dave lapoint. still, the sox did wind up trading him to pittsburgh part way through the 1988 season.

voici à vous, 1987 dave lapoint!
