  • On the back (toon, bottom left) – none
  • On the back (toon, bottom right) – none
  • Signed by the Red Sox as an amateur free agent in 1969.
  • Debut – July 10, 1977
  • 1977 (Red Sox), 1979-1981 (Phillies)
  • Born in Manati, Puerto Rico
Not sure why they didn’t feature any toons on this card.  It’s completely full with stats but out of the 15 years listed, only 3 were major league teams.  Must of just not had much to say about him, I guess.  Only played in 1 game for the Red Sox after signing with them.  Contract was purchased by the Phillies where he played 3 season and played all the infield position except 1st base.  Was traded to the rangers after the 1981 season but never saw anymore major league playing time.
  • Cards I have in this set – 5
  • Total price paid – $0.55
  • Average price per card – $0.11
  • Cards left to purchase – 721
