1989 kevin coffman

kevin coffman was traded from the braves to the cubs in september of 1988. here is his 1989 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
there were still a few games left in the season when coffman was dealt, but topps still had him in a braves jersey in the 1989 set. i suppose that's ok - coffman didn't appear in a game for the cubs in 1988 or 1989, for that matter. he spent all of 1989 in the minors before getting the call up in august of 1990. he appeared in 8 games for the cubs that year, starting the last two. he lost both starts and the cubs released him after the season ended.  it's interesting that o-pee-chee didn't just let the topps text ride like they had done a couple of times before (1987 darryl motley and 1988 doug decinces - both cards i haven't showcased yet).

voici à vous, 1989 kevin coffman!
