1976 Topps Traded #385T - Mickey Lolich

  • Mickey Lolich went to the Mets in a deal that sent Rusty Staub to the Detroit Tigers
  • Lolich pitched for the Mets for one season (1976) and went 8-13 with a 3.22 ERA in 30 starts.
  • Mickey retired after the 1976 season because he didn't want to be away from his family in Detroit.
  • Lolich came back and pitched for two seasons (1978-1979) for the San Diego Padres.

  1. Why couldn't those Topps artists get that blue right? All of 'em look horrid - Mets, Brewers, Mariners...
