Fun Cards Submissions: 1974 Topps “Traded” Chris Heisey and Matt Magill
The Dodgers needed a pinch-hitter/sixth-string outfielder, and the Reds needed another pitcher that likes to allow the other team to score (6.51 ERA in six major league starts). Matt Magill was roughed up in the bigs, but he didn’t fare much better in the minors, posting a 5.21 ERA at AAA Albuquerque. Of course, Chris Heisey‘s .222 batting average isn’t much to get excited about either, regardless of how nice a guy he is.
TWJ contributor Patrick e-mailed these 1974 Topps “Traded” cards to me last night to post on the blog today. They look great, though I would like to learn how to airbrush the logos rather than Photoshop to make it more faithful to the original style. They are great cards though, and I wish Heisey the best of luck in Los Angeles.
