1981 enos cabell

enos cabell was traded by the astros to the giants in december of 1980 for bob knepper. here is his 1981 o-pee-chee card
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
1980 had been a big year for the astros as they made the nlcs for the first time. they lacked a left-handed starter, however, and so sent cabell to san francisco in order to get knepper. as a result, cabell missed out on houston's return to the postseason in 1981. he spent just one year with the giants before heading to detroit which was followed by a return to the astros. in 1985 he headed back to the nl west, where he would finish his career as a dodger. interestingly enough, cabell's final career home run was hit off of bob knepper.

voici à vous, 1981 enos cabell!
