#85T Jack McDowell

Flying gold chain on the front, squinty eyes on the back!

The word "equalled" is on the back, again an acceptable but rare variant of the word "equaled."

Sad to see the mention of the late Don Drysdale on the back. For perspective on how old these cards are, he's be gone for more than 15 years already and yet was quoted on this card.

  1. I remember seeing McDowell's band Stickfigure at a club in Boston sometime in the late '90s. At that time Blackjack had long hair, a goatee and looked about 6'10", 120 lbs on that stage. I can't even describe how out of place he seemed as a frontman who was at least 8 inches taller than all the other members, but I've seen worse bands.
