1991 dwight evans

dwight evans was a lifelong red sox (sock?) until he was released by boston after the 1990 season. he then signed as a free agent with the orioles. here's his 1991 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
note to topps:  the umpire is not airbrushed out in this fantastic card from the 1991 set, a la that manny ramirez stadium club card from a few years ago. 

now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
the orioles put evans back in right field (he had been boston's dh in 1990), and he hit .270 with 6 outfield assists in return. he also hit the final 6 home runs of his career, including a pinch-hit grand slam against the a's in july. evans re-upped with the orioles for another season, but was released by the team in spring training of 1992.

voici à vous, 1991 dwight evans!
