1981 Topps Ken Kravec

The front: Looks like Tiger Stadium.

The back: Kravec was 14-7 with a 2.79 ERA at Knoxville.

The player: Kravec was the best pitcher on some bad White Sox teams in the late 1970s. He led the team in strikeouts from 1977 to 1979, and led the American League in hit batters in 1978 and 1979. He finished his career with the Cubs in 1981 and 1982.

The man: After his career he scouted for several teams, most recently the Rays.

My collection: I have eight of his cards, from 1977 to 1982. I would be interested in trading for 1982 TCMA Iowa Cubs #19.

  1. Kravec attended the same high school as my parents, so I have a soft spot in my collection for him.
