1996 Topps Steve Avery 165 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

It’s a shame that by the time the Braves won their World Series, one of the players responsible for their rise from the division cellar to perennial division champion was already on the decline. There was a time when many thought that Steve Avery might turn out better than Tom Glavine or John Smoltz. He may have, but he suffered an injury late in the 1993 season and he was never the same again.
