Born: November 18, 1952 in Houston, TX

Steve was the best position player that the Mets got in exchange for Tom Seaver in 1977, but it's not as if anything could have been enough! Steve had a fairly good big-league career, though. In his first taste of big-league action, he led the Mets in home runs and runs batted in, while appearing in less than 100 games! Unfortunately, despite several more seasons as a regular player, he never surpassed those figures. He's pictured here on his 1981 Kellogg's card, and a couple more oddball cards are among those shown below.
