1981 Topps Tom Paciorek

The front: Taking batting practice at a sun-drenched Tiger Stadium.

The back: Only eleven years in the major leagues, there should have been room for some kind of blurb.

The player: Paciorek played eighteen seasons in the major leagues for six teams as a backup outfielder and pinch hitter, only once playing more than 115 games in a season. Overall, in 1,392 games he hit .282 with 86 HR and 503 RBI.

The man: Paciorek was an announcer for several teams, most notably the White Sox. He is now retired.

My collection: I have 32 of his cards, from 1973 to 1988. I would be interested in trading for 1971 Topps #709.


  1. you know your stadiums! I never had a chance to see this one.

  2. Got to love that trident "M" on the two-tone helmet and the Seattle text across the jersey.
