1985 walt terrell

the mets traded walt terrell to the tigers in december of 1984 for howard johnson.  here's his 1985 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
terrell had the best 3 seasons of his career, from a win-loss standpoint anyway, with the tigers starting in 1985.  he won 15 games in both 1985 and 1986, and then won 17 in 1987 as he and the tigers won the american league east.  terrell got the start in game 3 of the alcs, which was the only game the tigers would win in the series.  terrell didn't get the decision, though, as he surrendered 6 runs in 6 innings and was relieved by mike henneman.

voici à vous, 1985 walt terrell!
