1981 Topps Don Robinson

The front: Robinson follows through at Shea Stadium. Nice detail in the background here. Robinson pitched in one day game at Shea in 1980, on June 8. He left with a 4-3 lead after giving up three straight hits to start the sixth inning. Enrique Romo relieved Robinson and got out of the jam, but the next inning gave up three runs to lose the game 6-4.

The back: In the ninth inning of Game 2, Robinson came into a tie game in the ninth inning with two runners on and one out. Robinson escaped the jam and won it with a scoreless bottom of the tenth after Dave Parker’s RBI single in the top of the inning gave the Pirates the lead.
The player: Robinson pitched for fifteen major league seasons, mostly for the Pirates and Giants. He alternated between starting and relieving throughout his career, constantly fighting injuries. Overall, in 524 games (229 starts) he went 109-106 with 57 saves and a 3.79 ERA.

The man: After his career he did some youth coaching and served on the city council of Kenova, West Virginia. On Christmas Eve of 2012, Robinson’s son Brent, his daughter-in-law Julia, and Julia’s parents were killed by a drunk driver who had had five previous DUI charges.

My collection: I have 50 of his cards, from 1979 to 1992. I would be interested in trading for 1988 Sportflics #90.
