1979 jerry koosman

as we can see by the card below, jerry koosman was traded from the mets to the twins in december of 1978.
what we don't see is that he was traded for a minor leaguer and a ptbnl.  that ptbnl turned out to be jesse orosco!

here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
koosman was two seasons removed from a 2nd place finish in the cy young voting when he was traded.  can't blame the mets - he had two pretty bad seasons leading up to the trade.  he rebounded nicely with the twins, though, as he won 20 games for a 4th place team in 1979.

voici à vous, 1979 jerry koosman!
