1983 mike torrez

mike torrez was traded from the red sox to the mets in january of 1983.  here's his 1983 o-pee-chee card:
in a very non-opc move, they hid the text in a dark spot on the card.  not cool.

here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
torrez's return to the national league did not go as planned, as he wound up leading the senior circuit in losses, earned runs allowed, and walks in 1983.  he did have 5 complete games, including a 10-inning affair against the braves which he won 2-1.  after a 1-5 start to the 1984 season, torrez was released by the mets.  he landed in oakland, but was released by the a's after just a couple of appearances.

voici à vous, 1983 mike torrez!
