While researching Lasorda for my 1983 Topps blog post I ran across this card. I didn't know much about Lasorda's playing career and was intrigued. However this card itself it quite remarkable. Topps still called him Tom even when he was a manager and everyone knew him as Tommy. Here we see the formal Thomas Lasorda on the facsimile autograph with a nice color portrait and a small black and white "action "shot. It seems strange to have his glove extend into the white border.
The batter he hit in Cuba was bigger than Lasorda for sure but if he charged a pitcher these days he'd be smaller than most hurlers.
And finally the third cartoon which is my favorite and speaks for itself.
