436 - Jim McAndrew
About This Player
Jim McAndrew played seven seasons in the Major Leagues and six of them with the New York Mets. Although he had spent most of his career as a spot starter, McAndrew enjoyed his best season in 1972 in which he tallied a 11-8 record with a 2.80 ERA.
One blogger, Mets Guy in Michigan, describes Jim McAndrew as being in the right place at the right time. Although he made his debut on a bad 1968 Mets team, he did have the fortune to play in the 1969 Amazin' Mets World Series team and on the 1973 National League Championship team.

About This Card
Despite having played the entire 1973 season with the Mets and pitching for the Padres in 1974, this 1973 Topps card would be McAndrew's final regular issue card.
