1976 SSPC Maximino Leon


The card, in brief: Leon strikes a standard pitching pose. No baseball is visible in his hand. Meanwhile, it looks like there are as many non-players as players on the field early before the game.

The player, in brief: Maximino Leon pitched for the Braves from 1973 to 1978, going 14-18 with 13 saves and a 3.71 ERA. He had a long career in the Mexican league, winining 126 games from 1968 to 1984, and was elected to the Mexican Baseball Hall of Fame in 1997. 

Post career, in brief: At last report he was still living in Mexico and coaching baseball there.

My collection: I have four of his cards, from 1975 to 1977. I would be interested in trading for 1976 O-Pee-Chee #576.
