Bobby Cox Blue Jays Cap Ad

Bobby Cox Blue Jays Cap AdBobby Cox managed my Blue Jays to our first ever AL East division pennant back in '85. I watched or listened to every game that season, and I remember McDonald's selling Jays caps for $1.99..

Here's the ad for the promotion featuring Bobby Cox, courtesy of Retrontario.

Bobby would leave us after this season for Atlanta where he'd go 2149-1709.

Not quite. Cox at least left for a promotion. He was the GM of the Braves before he went back to managing.

Toronto Mike Verified as the defacto Toronto Mike


True. And he promptly sent us a young Duane Ward in exchange for Doyle Alexander.
