Alan Trammell 1987 Donruss Opening Day

Alan Trammell 1987 Donruss Opening Day

As a kid, collecting the ‘Opening Day’ set was a nice way to add more cards to your collection.  Whether you were a set builder, team collector, or player collector, these added sets were a nice way to get more than just the standard issue cards from that year.

The 1987 Donruss ‘Opening Day’ set is one that I recall fondly.  I had two full sets, 1 that I kept in tact and 1 that I split into teams and then organized by position.  It was F-U-N!!!

Here is the Alan Trammell card from that set:

As for Opening Day in 1987, Trammell and his Tigers teammates were hosting the New York Yankees at Tiger Stadium.  The Tigers would lose the game 2-1, and Trammell had a forgettable day going 0-for-4 with a strikeout.

The Tigers would have the last laugh in ’87 – a 1st place finish in the AL East!!
