1988 mike davis

mike davis signed a free agent deal with the dodgers in december 1987.  here is his 1988 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
davis sprained his ankle during spring training and never seemed to get on track during the season.  he had been oakland's primary right fielder for a few years and was understandably frustrated when tommy lasorda used him so sporadically.  in fact, he once even held up a sign during a national game of the week that said 'mike davis is alive and well in los angeles'.  it all worked out in the postseason, as davis worked the biggest walk in dodger history off of dennis eckersley in game 1 of the world series.  he then stole second and scored on kirk gibson's walk-off home run.  davis hit a home run of his own - his only hit in the series - in the decisive game 5.

voici à vous, 1988 mike davis!
