#188 - Greg Pryor
What a card: Greg Pryor was coming off his most successful season since his days with the White Sox in 1979 and 1980 when this card was issued. Pryor played in 123 games for the Royals as a part-time player in '84.
My observation on the front: It appears that Pryor has hit a scorcher to the opposite field. Or maybe it's a harmless grounder to the opposite field.
More opinion from me: I love the "3B-SS-2B" designation! It turns out Pryor played only two games at short in 1984.
Something you might know: Pryor served as George Brett's backup for much of his time with the Royals and actually received more playing time in 1984 because Brett was injured that year.
Something you might not know: Pryor was dealt to the Yankees along with future Dodger-killer Brian Doyle, by the Rangers in 1977. But Pryor would never play for the Yankees, playing for Triple A Syracuse in '77.
My observation on the back: Isn't that nice of the trivia question? You're asked to only name three of the classifications.
The blog wants to speak now: Still stuck on July 13th and the Music category, but this time it's to update the top songs for the second week of July in 1985.
