1980 pepe frias

the braves traded pepe frias to the rangers in december of 1979.  here is his 1980 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
one of the players they got in return was larvell blanks, who was traded to the rangers for yesterday's featured player, len barker.

frias had been a kind of utility guy for the expos before joining the braves in 1979.  he became their everyday shortstop and hit his first (and only) career home run off of john candelaria.  he was the rangers' primary shortstop in 1980 as well, until he was dealt to the dodgers in september for dennis lewallyn.

voici à vous, 1980 pepe frias!
