1982 grant jackson

grant jackson was traded by the expos to the royals prior to the 1982 season.  here is his 1982 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
the expos had acquired jackson from the pirates late in the 1981 season, so he was not eligible to appear in the division series or the nlcs for the expos.  still, they used him in 10 games down the stretch before sending him to kansas city for ken phelps.  with the royals, jackson appeared in 20 games and had a record of 3-1.  the royals released him in july and he rejoined the pirates in september.  back with the team for whom he won game 7 of the 1979 world series, jackson was unable to stick as he made just one appearance and allowed all three of his inherited runners to score on a grand slam by ron hodges.  he retired the next two batters (the last one was ron gardenhire) to end his career.

voici à vous, 1982 grant jackson!
