1977 Topps Baseball #283 - Jerry DaVanon

  • After the 1976 season Jerry DaVanon was traded (with Larry Dierker) to the St. Louis Cardinals for Joe Ferguson and Bob Detherage. 
  • Jerry didn't stay with the Cardinals very long. DaVanon was released on May 11 and that was it for his playing career.
  • 1977 Stats
    • .000 (0 for 8), 2 runs scored
  • 1977 Highlights:
    • April 17 - Appeared as a pinch runner in the fifth inning and scored from third base when Bake McBride laid down a bunt with two out. McBride beat the throw as pitcher Grant Jackson fielded the ball and was momentarily confused on whether to throw home or to first base. It ended up being the winning run in the Cardinals' 4-3 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates
  • Other card blogs: 1971, 1976
