FAVORITE BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1970'S
#86 DAVE MAY
ATLANTA BRAVES 1975-1976
Dave May's career year was a 25 homer, 93 RBI,.303 average 1973 with the Milwaukee Brewers. But really he is mostly remembered as the guy the Braves traded Hank Aaron to the Brewers for so Hank could spend his last couple of years as a DH. Even in Dave's TOPPS card above, he looks like he's thinking, "I was traded for who?" He hit 12 homeruns for the Braves in 1975 before slumping and getting traded to the Texas Rangers in 1976 in the Jeff Burroughs trade.
Dave May passed away in 2012 at the age of 68.
