Steve Stone entered the 1981 season as the toast of baseball. Topps printed a special card to honor him for winning the 1980 Cy Young Award. He was spectacular with a 25-7 record. Unfortunately, the glory was fleeting. He hurt his arm in 1981, going only 4-7 in what would be the final 15 games of his career.
