1970 Topps #575: Cleon Jones, New York Mets, OF

Cleon Jones was a key member of the '69 Amazing Mets team that would eventually go on to win the World Series against the Baltimore Orioles.  Jones made his only All-Star appearance in '69, and came in 7th for NL MVP voting as well.  He would get another opportunity to play in the World Series in '73, but his team lost out to the streaking A's.  Jones played a total of 13 seasons in the majors between 1963-1976, with all but his final season as a Met.

  1. I see a Cleon Jones card and all I can think of is him making the catch for the final out of the '69 Series. Heartbreak time.
