1982 rich gale

it's rich gale weekend here at oh my o-pee-chee!

rich gale was traded to the giants in december of 1981. here is his 1982 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
gale had a record of 42-33 after 4 years with the royals, despite an era of 4.38. with the giants, gale went 7-14 with an era of 4.23. gale got to hit for the first time in his career in 1982, and despite striking out 34 times in 48 at bats, he managed to 'slug' his first career home run - a two-run shot of off doug bird, who had been gale's teammate with the royals in 1978.

voici à vous, 1982 rich gale!
