1985 Donruss Al Bumbry

Since Al Bumbry's All Star season in 1980 his numbers gradually declined. In 1985 at the age of 38 he was signed as a free agent by the NL Champion Padres. Bumbry managed to see action in only 68 games that season and barely hit at the Mendoza line. So after 13 seasons in an Oriole uniform and just one in a Padres uniform, he called it quits.

Once again I chose a Donruss product for my updated card. First, The 1985 set is one of the better looking sets of the era. Second, Donruss still didn't have a traded set. That leaves so many opportunities for a blog like this. Bumbry was featured as an Oriole in all the major sets in 1985 but as a Padre only in 1985 Topps Traded and the '85 Fleer Update.
