Baseball cards, eight, of Jack (Jon Thomas) Lazorko, pitcher; major leagues 1985-1989; born Hoboken 1956.
Cardstock, 2-1/2" x 3-1/2", as issued by several companies. Two copies of each (front and back imaged.)
A major league pitcher, he was a team member of the Milwaukee Brewers, Seattle Mariners, Detroit Tigers and Anaheim Angels baseball clubs in the period covered by these cards (no card for the Detroit Tigers is present in this group.) Statistics on some include his minor league career which started in 1978.
Although cards 7 and 8 are 1989 cards (issue of that year), Lazorko's last major league appearance was on September 27, 1988 for the California Angels. He continued playing in minor league organizations and others until 1993.
Lazorko was a Hoboken native, but was raised in River Edge, N.J., and graduated from River Dell High School.
