1990 fred toliver

fred toliver was traded from the padres to the yankees in september of 1989, during the season!  topps featured him in the 1990 set as a padre, without even some 'now with' text.  o-pee-chee cleared things up.  here's toliver's 1990 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
toliver didn't appear in any games for the yankees in 1989, however, nor in any other season.  the bronx bombers released toliver at the end of spring training the following year, and he signed with the angels as a free agent.  he didn't resurface in the big leagues until 1993, however, as a member of the pittsburgh pirates.

voici à vous, 1990 fred toliver!
