1981 Topps–Ed Figueroa #245

I’m collecting the 1981 set, slowly but surely. This post is the latest in my quest for the completion.

81topps-edfigeueroa245

  • Card Facts – Ed Figueroa – Texas Rangers – Card #245
  • Purchase Price – $0.05 (ebay lot – 100/$4.99)
  • On the back (toon, bottom left) – A giant fan as a youngster, his baseball hero was Juan Marichal.
  • On the back (toon, bottom right) – He’s the youngest of 7 brothers. 
  • Signed by the New York Mets as an amateur free agent in 1966.
  • Debut – April 9, 1974
  • 1974-1975 (Angels), 1976-1980 (Yankees), 1980 (Rangers), 1981 (A’s)
  • Born in Ciales, PR

Appeared in 15 games for the Yankees and only 8 with the Rangers but his card is a Rangers card.  They must have had a later release date for these cards in the year.  I assume this because it’s not really a high number. 

  • Cards posted in this set – 19
  • Total price paid – $1.49
  • Average price per card – $0.08
  • Cards left to post – 708
