This is the worst team in 1981 record wise. They even had a perfect game thrown against them this year by Cleveland's Len Barker. Translated out to a full 162 game schedule, the Blue Jays would've had 106 losses in 1981. 1981 was the Blue Jays 5th season in existence, but unlike their expansion brothers, the Mariners, the building blocks were in place for this team to turn it around in 4 years and make the playoffs in 1985.
Among the rookie cards in this set for the Blue Jays, their are a few players who would go onto contribute greatly to that 1985 team, Lloyd Moseby and Garth Iorg. But the most valuable, at least according to my ebay research, is a player who would be out of baseball after 1981, Danny Ainge. Of course he would go onto make his mark in basketball with the Larry Bird era Celtics and is now the president of the Boston Celtics.
