1991 steve finley

steve finley was traded in january of 1991 with pete harnisch and curt schilling to the astros for glenn davis. the orioles got robbed. here is finley's 1991 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
finley patrolled center field for the astros for four seasons, and in each season, he fielded the position better than he did when he won his first two gold gloves in 1995 and 1996 for the padres. go figure. during his time in houston, he hit .281 with 110 steals. he hit just 32 homers for the 'stros, but his power game changed after he was traded to the pads in that 1994 11-player deal.

voici à vous, 1991 steve finley!
