Turn Back the Clock Andre Dawson

 I haven't been buy all of the Cubs cards in Turn Back the Clock, just the player that I have players collection.  Andre Dawson is one of those players.

This card came out on August 1 and had a print run of 522.  As you can see, Andre hit three homers and knocked in all five of the Cubs runs.  The Cubs beat the Phillies 5-3 in front of 33,002 fans on a sunny Saturday.  

The homers came in the 3rd, 5th, and 7th inning.  You would have thought that they would have pitched around him in the 7th after he went deep his previous two at bats.  Or maybe knocked him down.  But instead, while leading off the seventh, he blasted another home run.  It gave the Cubs a little insurance and Lee Smith pitched the final two innings for the save.
