1981 Topps Larry Gura

The front: Gura in mid wind-up on a sunny spring day.

The back: Alfredo Griffin got two of the Blue Jays’ hits that day; Rick Bosetti got the other one. All were singles.

The player: Gura struggled for several years with the Cubs and Yankees before blossoming with the Royals. In ten seasons in Kansas City he went 111-78 with a 3.72 ERA, winning over 16 games three times.

The man: Gura is now into organic farming. He has also written a guide to better pitching, called “After the Pitch”.

My collection: I have 26 of his cards, from 1971 to 1985. I would be interested in trading for 1975 Topps Mini #557.

  1. Really like cards which show a player was an all-star.
