Young Superstars #19 - Kelly Downs

This is a pretty unremarkable card. Not much is happening on the front and the picture on the reverse is one of the worst headshots thus far in the set.

According to the back of the card, Al Rosen was counting on Downs in 1988, and he did a pretty good job of living up to the boss's expectations in his only season as a starter winning 13 games. But after '88 he was used primarily as a reliever and spot starter and wasn't very effective for the remainder of his career.
