1989 jody davis

jody davis was traded by the cubs to the braves in september of 1988.  here is his 1989 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
this is one of my favorite variations just from the standpoint that topps had the text on the card, but o-pee-chee decided to modify it. unlike the 1987 darryl motley card or the 1988 doug decinces card, o-pee-chee made a text variation when one really wasn't needed.

as you can see, davis appeared in only 2 games for the braves in 1988, but did connect for a home run. he had a decent year in 1989 for atlanta as a backup backstop even though he hit well below .200, but was released by the club only a month into the 1990 season.

voici à vous, 1989 jody davis!
