1981 Topps #586 Silvio Martinez
Silvio Ramon Martinez was born in the Dominican Republic on August 19, 1955. The Cardinals acquired Martinez in a trade with the Chicago White Sox on November 28, 1977. He pitched four seasons (1978-1981) for the Cardinals. During that time, he posted a 31-32 win-loss record in 87 starts and compiled a 3.88 ERA. The Cardinals traded Silvio to Clevland in a three-way deal that brought outfielder and fan-favorite Lonnie Smith to St. Louis via Philadelphia. After leaving St. Louis, Silvio never pitched in another Major League game.
