1981 Topps Dave Frost


The front: A sunny day at Yankee Stadium.

The back: 10-3 against the AL West; 3-7 against the AL East. And another AL East loss in Game 2 of the ALCS, allowing 10 runs in 4.1 innings in a loss to the Orioles.

The player: An elbow injury in early 1980 ended up wrecking his career, with ERAs in the mid-5s in 1980, 1981 and 1982, ending his career at age 30.

The man: According to the 1982 Topps Blog, Frost abandoned a post-baseball career as a commodities broker to get a degree in psychology, and now works to counsel and rehabilitate domestic violence offenders. He also coaches for the MLB Urban Youth Academy.

My collection: I have ten of his cards, from 1979 to 1983. I would be interested in trading for 1982 Topps Traded #37.
