Card of the Day: 1/6/16

1981 Topps #441 Ken Reitz

      Reitz (an All-Star in 1980) was packaged with Leon Durham and a player-to-be-named-later (Ty Waller) and sent to the Chicago Cubs on December 22, 1980 for Bruce Sutter. The Cardinals won a World Series championship two years later. Consequently, Leon Durham made a crucial error in the 1984 NLCS that kept the Cubs out of the World Series. Coincidence? We think not.
