Tommy Davis

Herman Thomas Davis Jr.
Batted: Right
Threw: Right
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 205 lbs.
Born: March 21, 1939 in Brooklyn, NY
Signed: 1956 by the Brooklyn Dodgers
Acquired: traded from the Los Angeles Dodgers with Derrell Griffith for
Ron Hunt and Jim Hickman, November 1966
Departed: traded to the Chicago White Sox with Buddy Booker,
Jack Fisher, and Billy Wynne for Tommie Agee and Al Weis, December 1967

 

On this 1963 Topps card, Tommy is surrounded by three Hall of Famers and one future National League president. And he's in the diamond in the center, because he beat out all those other luminaries for the batting championship in 1962. Also, in the only season he played for the Mets, he led the club in all of the Triple Crown categories, as well as slugging percentage and on-base percentage. Not too bad. Over a dozen more Tommy Davis items are pictured below, including another star-studded batting championship card.
