What a card: This card recognizes the Mariners selecting Al Chambers with the first pick of the 1979 MLB draft. The Mets picked Tim Leary second.
My observation on the front: It's very cloudy wherever Chambers is.
More opinion from me: This is Chambers' only Topps card. He very nearly didn't make this subset because Topps focused only on No. 1 picks who were still playing in the majors. Chambers would have only four more at-bats in his major league career after the 1984 season.
Something you might know: Chambers is considered one of the biggest busts among No. 1 draft picks in MLB history. He'd play in only 57 MLB games and was done by age 24.
Something you might not know: After his baseball career ended, Chambers got a job mixing the ingredients for chocolate syrup at Hershey Foods.
My observation on the back: Reading that is like reading my social studies textbook in 9th grade.
