1987 Spokane Indians at the Mall - Dave Hollins

Dave Hollins is one of the biggest stars to appear in this set. He spent twelve years in the major leagues, but none of them with the Padres. A Rule 5 selection by the Phillies, he stuck with the team and became a key contributor to their surprising 1993 pennant-winning team. Overall in 983 major league games he hit .260 with 112 HR and 482 RBI. He is now a Phillies scout.

Hollins is pictured at Candy 'N' Carmelcorn. There is not much online about this one-time food court mainstay, which opened in the 1970s and lasted until the remodel in the early 1990s. A recent TBT post on the mall's Facebook page highlighted the store. The very first comment was: "To bad you took there space away when you remodeled!!!!"
