Dave Parker 1984 Fleer – Dave Flashes Us His Million Dollar Smile!!!
Dave Parker played in an era when player salaries started to blossom. He was not part of the period in which players were signing hundred-million dollar contracts, but he did play when the first multi-year multi-million dollar contracts were issued.
A quick check at www.baseballreference.com shows that Parker did earn more than a million dollars per season played from 1986-1991.
And when I talked to Dave about this, he flashed me his ‘Million Dollar Smile’!!!
