and the topps back:
unfortunately for jones, the pirates released him at the end of spring training, and he never actually took the mound for the bucs in the big leagues. that means that jones' final career appearance came on september 7, 1982 against the pirates, and that his 1983 card is a 'final tribute'. jones' career was over, with exactly 100 wins, a cy young award, and a penchant for bbq.

voici à vous, 1983 randy jones!
