    And he would have exclaimed it was a "mere flesh wound".

      I also remember his 1981 Fleer card as being the first really big money rookie card in the early 80s baseball card boom.
      It's worth 25 cents today. Odd that Fleer listed him as a DH since he played more games in the outfield than at DH in 1980.

        I don't remember anyone really caring about his Topps or Donruss cards, but the Fleer was being sold for at least $10 out of the pack at card stores in 1981.
