As a rare “five-tool”, he excelled in hitting for average, power hitting, speed and strong base running, throwing ability, and excellent fielding. Even with extraordinary skills, he was plagued by ongoing injuries throughout his professional career but still left his mark on baseball. From 1986 to 1990, he finished in the top 15 for MVP, made the NL’s Top 10 for home runs, batting percentage, and OPS each year played, and was invaluable in the Red’s Wire-to-Wire Championship season. The play most remembered was his home run in his first at-bat in the 1990 World Series, helping the Reds sweep the championship. Unfortunately, in game 4, his kidney was lacerated and following surgery, his “edge” was gone. Davis first retired in 1994 due to ongoing health issues but came back to the Reds in 1996 with an excellent season. Even after being diagnosed with colon cancer in 1997, he was determined to return to the game he loved, which he did in 1998, having one of his best years ever and coming in as fourth best in the AL. Over the next three years with the Reds and San Francisco Giants, he continued to be plagued with injuries, leading to permanent retirement in 2001. As a two-time NL All-Star, three and two-time recipient of the Gold Glove and Silver Slugger Award, respectively, buying an Eric Davis rookie card makes a great investment.
