1993 Topps Alvin Davis

Alvin Davis played in MLB from 1984-1992. He played all but 1 of his seasons with the Seattlr Mariners. He received Topps cards from 1984 to 1992, not receiving a sunset card in '93, but getting an extra card in the '84 Traded set.

He started off his career hot, homering in his first 2 games, and reaching base in his first 47 games. He won the '84 AL Rookie of the Year award, and was one of the first legitimate hitting stars on the Mariners, holding many of the clubs records until Griffey, ARod, and Edgar Martinez started swinging. After his MLB career, he played in Japan in 1993, and went on to become an instructor in for the M's.

I stole this photo from another card, I believe it was a Bowman one. Sometimes, that's the choice you have to make with guys who only played a few games for a team. I used a '93 Topps Tim Salmon card for the rest of it. This would've been Alvin's last Topps card, and the only one that he needed to have a complete career run of Topps cards.

Thanks for checking out the newest card in my set.
