now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
reynolds, a former first-rounder like bannister (though reynolds was the 22nd pick, not the first overall) had enjoyed the best season of his career in 1978.  still, he made the all-star team for the second year in a row in 1979 (he was 0 for 2) and was a fixture in houston for 11 years. he even made a couple of pitching appearances for the astros, and while he didn't do very well, he did strike out howard johnson for his lone career punch-out.

voici à vous, 1979 craig reynolds!
