Topps Heritage Card of the Day: 2001 Topps Heritage #83 Johnny Damon

The 2001 Topps Heritage card of Johnny Damon would be his last Heritage card in a KC Royals uniform. Damon, under orders from superagent Scott Boras was set to test the free agent waters soon and thus forced KC's hand. He was trading before the 2001 season to Oakland and would continue a successful career, although his last year in Kansas City (2000) would mark his career high for hits (200), doubles (42), runs (136), AB (655), steals (46) and batting average (.327). Johnny would have a bit of a rough year in 2001 with Oakland, but would later bounce back with Boston and the NY Yankees.
