Card of the Day: 2008 Topps Gold Doug Davis

Most everything about the Diamondbacks 10-5 win against the Dodgers last night seemed to be normal.

However, Doug Davis pitched six strong innings knowing that he would not be pitching for quite some time after his final pitch.

Davis will have surgery on Thursday to remove thyroid, and it's remarkable that he was able to pitch (and hit for that matter) as well as he did last night.

What effect will his cancer have on the his card market? Well, probably none, but I'm sure there will be plenty of people will save a card of Davis just to remember the incident.
