1983 Topps Super Veteran – Tommy John

1983 Topps Super Veteran – Tommy John

What is Tommy John most famous for?  His incredible 26-season pitching career or for having a surgery named after him???  Sadly, the answer is #2.

An odd Tommy John fact – John played in 3 World Series match-ups, losing all 3 times.  In 1977 and 1978 he played as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers and they were beaten both times by the New York Yankess.  John then made it to the World Series in 1981 as a member of those Yankees and lost to…  the Los Angeles Dodgers.
