Kellogg's Cereal Box Dream #33 - Was Tommy John Surgery an Option?

I probably got one of these Randy Jones cards from a Frosted Flakes box.  He appeared in both the 1976 and 1977 sets.  Both were great looking cards.  

He played ten years winning exactly 100 games and losing 123.  He didn't play on good teams in San Diego or New York.  After being a 20-game loser (8-22) in 1974 he won 20 games in 1975 and 1976.  
He had an arm injury at the end of 1976 which caused him to be less effective during his remaining years in the big leagues.

1977 Kellogg's Randy Jones #17 

1977 Rating                    -- 8  comment -- A big star even as a Padre.

2016 Rating                    -- 5 comment --  Mostly a common card.  Nice Padre uniform shown.
