#413 - Vance Law

What a card: Vance Law was coming off a 1984 season in which he discovered his home run stroke. He hit 17 home runs, 12 more than he had hit in any previous season and the most of his 11-year career.

My observation on the front: You want to know what '80s fashion was all about? A guy wearing a mid-1980s White Sox uniform and giant frames kind of sums it up.

More opinion from me: This is the second appearance of Law in this set and it isn't even the last one. He'll appear in the Traded set, too. That seems like a little too much.

Something you might know: Law is the son of Pirates Cy Young Award winner Vern Law.

Something you might not know: Vance Law could pitch, too. He appeared as an emergency reliever seven times in his career. Seven times! Imagine the Twitter frenzy if it existed during Law's time.

My observation on the back: Vance's siblings names are: VaLynda, Varlin, Vaughn, Veldon and Veryl.

The blog wants to speak now: The Ballgames category is updated.
