1983 leon roberts

leon roberts (not leon 'bip' roberts) was traded by the blue jays to the royals in february 1983 for cecil fielder.  straight-up.  here's his 1983 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
roberts, in my opinion, is a first ballot member of the reggie cleveland all-stars, but i digress.  roberts spent the last two seasons of his career in kansas city, playing outfield with an occasional dh appearance.  in 1983, he hit 8 homers, and in 1984, he made his only major league pitching appearance in a blowout loss against the indians.  in that game, roberts mopped up by allowing 3 runs in his lone inning of work, although he did strikeout mel hall, the first batter he faced.

voici à vous, 1983 leon roberts!
