1981 Topps Elias Sosa

The front: Simple spring training shot. How comfortable was it to wear a uniform over a jacket? Seems bulky to me.

The back: Woodie Fryman led the team with 17 saves.
The player: Sosa was a generally dependable short- and middle-reliever for eight teams in twelve seasons. His best season was 1979, when he went 8-7 with 18 saves and a 1.96 ERA for the Expos. Overall, in 601 games, he went 59-51 with 83 saves and a 3.32 ERA.

The man: He is now Latin American Coordinator for Major League Baseball, conducting youth baseball coach in various Latin American countries.

My collection: I have 20 of his cards, from 1974 to 1984. I would be interested in trading for 1982 Topps Traded #112.
