#375 - Jeff Reardon
What a card: Jeff Reardon was about to embark on his first 40-save season when this card was issued. He had saved at least 20 games for three straight seasons for the Expos between 1982-84.
My observation on the front: Is that an evergreen in the background?
More opinion from me: Expos home uniforms were so bright and clean-looking. No other team existing today seems to have uniforms as fresh and clean as Montreal's were.
Something you might know: Reardon was the all-time career saves leader for about a season in 1992 and is now eighth on the all-time list.
Something you might not know: Reardon's "Terminator" nickname was coined by longtime Montreal radio personality Mitch Melnick.
My observation on the back: Swimming with a beard doesn't seem fun.
