here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
foster was a 10-game winner for the dodgers in 1970, but won only 8 games for the tribe in 1971 despite posting slightly better stats.  he did win his first start for the indians, a 8.1 inning effort against the red sox, despite giving up 9 walks.  after the season, the indians sent foster to the angels where he spent most of the 1972 season in aaa.  he was picked up by the cardinals for the 1973 and 1974 seasons before spending the last two years of his career with the padres.

voici à vous, 1971 alan foster!


  1. Those 1971 O Pee Chee backs are awesome

  2. His 1972 card has a pretty bad airbrush job on it.
