1981 Topps Jackson Todd

The front: Extreme close-up at what I believe is Tiger Stadium.

The back: This is an error – the score of the game was 3-2, not 3-1. Only one of the runs was earned, perhaps accounting for why Topps made this error.

The player: Todd pitched parts of four seasons for the Mets and Blue Jays. In 64 games (36 starts), he went 10-16 with a 4.40 ERA.

The man: Todd was a long-time minor-league and college coach, and still does some youth coaching in his native Oklahoma.

My collection: I have six of his cards, from 1978 to 1982. I would be interested in trading for 1982 TCMA Syracuse Chiefs #9.
