Sportscaster Randy Jones Card (1979)

I wasn’t to sure what Sportscaster cards were so I had to look them up. Turns out they were only available by mail-order subscription from 1977-1979. Every few weeks the subscriber would receive 24 cards and be given the option to renew for another week. It wasn’t just baseball either as Basketball, Football, Tennis, Hockey, Soccer, Golf, Track & Field, Boxing & Beyond Sports all were included in the run. It’s not a normal size card either, measuring roughly 4.75″ x 6.75″. This particular card (#17-04) is from 1979. On the back they call Randy the “Slow-Ball Master”. In the lower left hand corner is the finest quote though…..”His fast ball really isn’t”.
