1990 Topps Minis #26: Storm Davis

Last time we looked in on the 1990 Topps Mini League Leaders set, we finished out the Yankees with Don Mattingly and Steve Sax.  Now we're on to the next AL location alphabetically, Oakland.

And we start in Oakland with starting pitcher Storm Davis.  Back in the day, statistics like wins meant something, and Davis had some good years with those Oakland pennant winners.  You don't need me to tell you, though, that those winning years of his have become known as being emblematic of being lucky/overperforming, as sabermetrics have come to the fore.  In any case, I prefer to think well of Davis for his years in Oakland.

Davis made his way into this league leaders set with that one particular statistic, tying for #3 in the league with 19 wins.  The photo on the back is great for really highlighting his mullet.

We continue with more Oakland A's, since the near-dynasty of course had many league leaders.  Next up are Eckersley and then Henderson.  Thanks for reading!

  1. Not sure which is more impressive, that he won 19 games or that mullet.
