I found this card in a nickel box at a place where I get random cards - unlike many other Dawson baseball cards, where he is grimacing and/or is seemingly in a serious mood, he is actually looking at someone and smiling. Dawson is in the prime of his career and while playing on Astroturf will have consquences for his later health, Dawson is just beaming.
Is this a nickel card of a player soon to be enshrined in the National Baseball Hall of Fame [?] - who knows really, but Dawson put together a impressive resume that showcased his ability to hit for power and for speed.
Dawson's 1987 Classic Yellow card #124 probably captures his worst moment as he hits the ground - Classic, which produced trading cards revolving around a baseball themed board game, used the same image as a 7/20/87 issue of Sports Illustrated titled, 'Beanbrawls' with Dawson on the cover.
