1985 vance law

vance law was traded from the white sox to the expos in december of 1984. here is his 1985 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
i love the text on the back regarding the first initial 'v' because i vividly recall vin scully commenting/lamenting during a dodgers/expos game that despite all the names beginning with 'v' in the law family, there was no vincent.

the expos moved law back to second base, although they also used him at first, third and in right field occasionally. he also made a few mound appearances for them in 1986 and '87. he had 6 such appearances during that time, and allowed only 2 earned runs in 7.1 innings pitched. he also struck out 2 batters (dave henderson and robby thompson, both giants - ha!). law spent 3 years in montreal before moving on to the cubs prior to the 1988 season.

voici à vous, 1985 vance law!
