Here's the card that got me to by the pack and at $1.99 I have no regrets. The 74's distinct back could not be denied. I didn't pack search the cards, so I was a little surprised that all the cards in the bag were of Evans. More than half of the cards were his '89 Donruss card.
1989 was Darrell's last year, he actually finished his career with the team he started with, the Braves. the rest of the cards were a nice collection of 70's and early 80's cards. Darrell did have cards issued in the 1990's with him in his Braves uniform again.
1977 was Darrell's scruffy phase.
Yikes that '85 Fleer didn't scan so good.
Not a bad little collection of cards for under 2 bucks. I think I might have to send a couple of the 70's cards to Darrell and see if he'll sign them. Since I started collecting back in the 80's I mainly remember Darrell as a Tiger, but I'm sure there are plenty of fans out there that remember him as a Brave and Giant. Darrell retired after the 1989 season and went to coach for the Yankees. Darrell is now the Commissioner and an instructor for the California Winter League.
Author Bill James was quoted as saying that Evan's was "the most underrated player in baseball history, absolutely number one on the list."And for most of his career poor Darrell was overshadowed by another 3rd baseman, Mike Schmidt.
