Card fact: A couple of days after the pink-yellow border combination pulled even with the orange-brown border combo, orange-brown comes back with its first offering in 52 cards to regain the overall lead with 46 cards.
What I thought about this card then: I did not see it. The first card of Jesse Jefferson's I saw was his 1976 card when he's with the White Sox. Still rockin' the Afro, though. The nice thing about Jefferson's cards is he pitched from 1973-82, and he's featuring an Afro in every one of his cards.
What I think about this card now: It's good to see the tilted background again. A nice wide view of the ballfield falling off the shelf.
Other stuff: Jefferson pitched for nine seasons for the Orioles, White Sox, Blue Jays, Pirates and Angels. With the exception of his first two years in the majors, he had a losing record in every season, resulting in an unenviable 39-81 career won-loss record.
A lot of that came as a result of being on the expansion Blue Jays for the first four years of its existence.
Jefferson led the league in errors committed by a pitcher, twice (1977 and 1981).
Back facts: Have you ever tried to squat while flat-footed? You won't be squatting for long. I think the stance is more a matter of necessity than being "correct."
Other blog stuff: Still waiting for those erased comments to reappear, Blogger. The weekend is half over.
