This card also highlights what I said about getting two random players on the card and coming up with some random justification. They're not really random in a sense, since they were the starting battery for the 1981 All-Star Game, which is what the text on the back of the card describes. The premise on the front, though, West Meets East, is remarkably shallow -- they play in different divisions! And yet they met! While the card was probably shot at the All-Star game, the Expos and Dodgers met up frequently -- they played 7 games in the regular (strike-shortened) season, and they played 5 games in the NLCS.
