1981 randy jones

randy jones was traded to the mets in december of 1980. here is his 1981 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
in the four years after winning 42 games for the pads over the 1975 and 1976 seasons, jones won only 35 games despite a cumulative era of 3.62, and the hapless padres sent him to the equally dismal mets. jones was 1-8 with a 4.85 era in the strike-shortened season, and only marginally better in 1982, when he went 7-10 with a 4.60 era for the metropolitans. he did manage a 4-hit shutout of the astros in may of 1982, striking out a season high 6 batters in the process.

voici à vous, 1981 randy jones!
