1981 Donruss, Steve Nicosia

#373 Steve Nicosia

Nest up is the Steve Nicosia card that I got signed through the mail. I sent the card to Steve in January and I had it back about a month and a half later.

Steve played in the Majors for parts of eight seasons. A majority of that time was spent with Pittshurgh, but he also played with the Giants, Expos, and Blue Jays in his final years. Steve spent most of his time as a back-up catcher, though he did platoon for a couple of seasons early in his career. The most games he ever appeared in during a season was 70 and that came in 1979. He probably had his best season that year, too, as he hit .288 with career highs in doubles (16), home runs (4), and walks (23).

Steve finished his career in 1985 a .248 hitter with 11 home runs. Nine of those were of the solo variety.

'81 Donruss Tracker: 140/100
