Craig Swan #589

He does not look like a Swan pitchered here in a Met uniform. I think he won an ERA title one year. On the back of his card it says it all.  "Is in the third year of a $3.5 million contract". This guy was making over a million a year in 1982. Wow.

As I mentioned before I think the 1982 Donruss set was the first to really mention contracts and dollar amounts of the players. I think that was the result of free agency and the 1981 strike.
