#419 - Mike Caldwell

What a card: This is the final card issued of Mike Caldwell during his career. In fact, he was released by the Brewers before most collectors even pulled his card. Milwaukee let him go on January 11, 1985.

My observation on the front: A weirdly cropped photo. Neither hand is fully in the frame.

More opinion from me: The card is miscut, too.

Something you might know: Caldwell won 22 games in 1978, finishing second in the A.L. Cy Young Award voting to Ron Guidry. He also won two games for the Brewers in the 1982 World Series.

Something you might not know: Caldwell once struck out 31 batters in a high school game that went 18 innings. But he didn't win the game. It finished tied.

My observation on the back: Complete season stats!
