former number 1 pick floyd bannister was traded from the astros to the mariners in december of 1978.  here's his 1979 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
with the m's, bannister was one of three pitchers on the 1979 staff to win at least 10 games.  unfortunately, he was also one of five mariners hurlers to lose at least 10 games that season.  still, he had a couple of 6-hit shutouts that year and he eventually became their number 1 starter before leaving for the greener grass of chicago.

voici à vous, 1979 floyd bannister!
