davalillo actually had a final tribute card in 1981, thanks to fleer which included cards for both davalillo (front)
last but not least, jerry grote also came out of retirement to play in 1981, and should have been included in the 1981 topps traded set (in my opinion). i mean, if doug rau gets a card despite not playing in a game after june of 1981, then grote deserved to be in there. although not at the expense of the only doug rau as an angel card - that would not have been good.
here is the 1981 topps traded jerry grote card that should have been.
so, now we are caught up with how things were and how they should have been for the 1978 topps dodgers in 1981. we'll move on to 1982 soon.
