1987 storm davis

storm davis was acquired by the padres from the orioles in an october, 1986 trade.  here is his 1987 o-pee-chee card: 
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
davis did not benefit from the move to the national league.  he was 2-7 with a 6.18 era in 21 games for the pads when they shipped him to oakland on august 30, 1987.  he went 1-1 and 3.26 for the a's after the trade, and then won 16 games (with a 3.70 era) for them in 1988 (although he took the loss in two world series games against the dodgers).  then, in 1989, davis won 19 games with less than stellar 4.36 era.  he took a loss in the alcs and did not appear in the earthquake series against the giants.

davis parlayed his 19-win season into a free agent deal with the royals, creating the need for another o-pee-chee variation in 1990.

voici à vous, 1987 storm davis!
