But here's the deal about Evans--he had megastar talent and performance and never got credit for it.
Here are the top OPS+ values in the 1980s for players with at least 4000 plate appearances:
Evans was right there with the best players of the era. However, he was overshadowed on his own team. In his early career, Carl Yastrzemski, Jim Rice, and Fred Lynn got more attention. Rice continued to get more attention from fans during the early 1980s, and then Wade Boggs became the team's offensive star in the mid 1980s. Toward the end of Evans' time with the team, Ellis Burks and Mike Greenwell were in the spotlight.
The card is from Fleer's 1985 set, #158. The Red Sox cards from that set look amazing, thanks to the simply red and gray color scheme. What the heck is Evans' swinging in that photo? Some sort of warm-up bat I presume.
The stats on the back are impressive...in fact for the 1980s, Evans' rankings were as follows: runs (3rd), RBI (4th), HR (4th), extra-base hits (1st), total bases (5th), and times on base (2nd).
