1981 Topps Mike Barlow

The front: Barlow looks wistful, maybe even sad. Looks like Tiger Stadium.
The back: In addition to baseball, Barlow also starred in basketball as a youth, earning a scholarship to Syracuse University.
The player: Barlow was a middle reliever for four teams over seven seasons, going 10-6 with 6 saves and a 4.63 ERA in 133 games.
The man: Barlow was a youth baseball coach for many years and is now retired.
My collection: I have three of his cards, from 1978 to 1981. I would be interested in trading for 1976 SSPC #298.

  1. You've been posting a lot of 1981 Topps cards. Have you thought about creating a side blog for just this set? Night Owl and others have done this with various sets. Just a thought.
