1985 john tudor

john tudor was traded from the pirates to the cardinals in december of 1984.  here is his 1985 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
tudor had his career year for the cards in 1985.  21 wins.  a 1.93 era. a league best 10 shutouts. a league leading whip of 0.938.  second place in the nl cy young voting (dwight gooden was better) and 8th place in the mvp race.  tudor capped it off with a win against the dodgers in the nlcs (although he was the loser in game 1) and two victories against the royals in the world series, including a game 4 shutout.  unfortunately, tudor lost game 7.

tudor returned to the fall classic with the cardinals in 1987, but he wouldn't win a ring until the following year when he was a member of the dodgers.  tudor actually started game 3 (the only game of the series that the dodgers lost) but was removed due to injury in the second inning after striking out mark mcgwire.

voici à vous, 1985 john tudor!
