1978 tim foli

tim foli was the number 1 overall pick in the 1968 amatuer draft.  the team that chose him? the new york metropolitans.  they later traded him to the expos for le grand orange, but decided to bring him back to the club in late 1977.  by that time, tim was with the giants, thus his 1978 o-pee-chee card
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
tim's second tour with the mets would last just over a year as he was traded to the pirates a couple of weeks into the 1979 season.  that worked out pretty well for foli, as he would help the bucs to their world championship as part of 'the family'.  he would later help the 1982 angels get to the postseason, but with more disappointing results.

voici à vous, 1978 tim foli!
