John Henry Johnson (Leg Up)

Marichal Redux. One of the great action shots of all time up to 1982. Probably one of the first baseball cards to catch that up close and personal view of a pitcher in that leg up motion just before the pitch. The only other card I can compare it to prior to 1982 was Topps 1974 Juan Marichal. However, the photo on this card is cropped a little tighter.

Back Facts: Rangers obtained him 6/16/79 from A's for Mike Heath and Dave Chalk.
