It's not too often a baseball card will feature a player getting beaned - but that's exactly what Classic did in it's 1988 card of Andre Dawson.
This was a big deal at the time - seven Cubs were ejected and a very similar photo, maybe the same one, made the cover of Sports Illustrated.
The back of this card is interesting too. Dawson's college statistics at Florida A&M seem lost to history - the only thing I can find on the internet is that he was considered a "skinny center fielder" when Montreal drafted him.
And that last question - does anyone call home runs "gophers" anymore? I remember in 1987, that original year of the home run, they were often called "taters" by the media. That expression seems gone as well.
