Fleer Randy Jones Card (1981)

This card from the 1981 Fleer (#487) set is interesting. Everything on the back is normal and for the most part everything appears to be normal on the front. But look at the patch on his sleeve and his uniform. The picture was taken 3 seasons earlier, during the 1978 season when the Padres hosted the All-Star game (hence the patch). Also, 1978 was the ONLY year they used those particular uniforms. By 1981 they were already wearing the uniforms that are now referred to by all the fans as the ’84 unis. So it’s kind of a retro card before they had retro cards I guess.
