1986 alex trevino

in december of 1985, something happened that had never happened before in my lifetime.  in fact, it has happened only once since.  on that day, the giants and dodgers completed a trade - the dodgers sent candy maldonado to the giants, and received alex trevino in return.  here's alex trevino's 1986 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
trevino spent the 1986 and 1987 seasons with the dodgers, backing up mike scioscia behind the plate. in those two years, trevino hit .246 and hit 7 home runs, which were more than he had hit with any team. the dodgers released trevino at the start of the 1988 season, having brought rick dempsey on board. trevino signed with the astros a week later and repaid the dodgers by hitting both of his home runs that year against the blue at dodger stadium.

this is also the last of the 1986 o-pee-chee variations. another year done.
voici à vous, 1986 alex trevino!
