eBay Wins #202

I've moved ahead two whole years since my last eBay post, from 1983 to 1985. The cheap cards I get tend to cluster around 87-91, so we're still looking at the tail of the distribution for you math geeks out there.

1985 Fleer
#200 Onix Concepcion
#453 Mike Jeffcoat
I realize that 85 and 93 aren't all that far apart, but it still makes me feel weird to see a guy on a card this old that played for the Marlins, like Mike Jeffcoat did. That's probably because the Marlins are still an expansion team in my mind, and these cards are before the time I started watching baseball, so my perception is of much time passing in that interval.

I don't know much about Onix Concepcion, except he appears to be a career backup, playing just 390 games over 7 seasons. 1985 was his biggest season, and also practically his last. He played 131 games and won a World Series ring, against the Cardinals. He only ever played one additional MLB game, for Pittsburgh in 1987.
