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.
