1976 Hostess #142 - Gary Matthews

  • Gary Matthews was one of the unsung young stars of the game in 1976. Playing for several bad Giants teams didn't help him gain much notoriety.
  • In 1976 Matthews batted .279 with 20 HR and 84 RBI.
  • After the 1976 season Gary signed a multi-year contract with the Atlanta Braves.
  • The Braves lost a first round draft choice and were fined for contacting Matthews without permission before the opening of the free agent season.
  • Before peak, peak, or after peak? peak
