1985 jack clark

jack clark was traded to the cardinals in february of 1985.  but you knew that because it's all there on his 1985 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
clark had a devastatingly good 1985 season.  he helped the cardinals get to the playoffs and then, with first base open, killed the dodgers with a game winning home run in game 6.  he wound up hitting only .240 in the world series, however, and the cardinals lost to the royals in 7 games.  i believe clark was the one who fed the throw to todd worrell to lead off the 9th in game 6 that resulted in jorge orta being called safe.  and the rest is history.  while the cardinals won the title in 1987, clark was limited to a lone pinch-hit performance in the nlcs (he struck out) that year.

voici à vous, 1985 jack clark!
