1982 george foster in action

george foster (as previously mentioned) was traded from the reds to the mets in february of 1982.  here is his 1982 'in action' o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
and, just like davey lopes, the 'in action' card features a photo devoid of action.  all of the highlights listed on the back of foster's card came with the reds, as he was traded from the giants to the reds during the 1971 season and so didn't participate in the giants' postseason that year.  not only are all of the highlights from his cincinnati years, they are the only all-star, championship series and world series moments foster enjoyed as he was never again named to an all-star team and neither the mets nor the white sox made the postseaons while foster was playing for them.  he sure made his appearances in those games count, though.

voici à vous, 1982 george foster in action!
