Mardie was actually drafted four times before he signed; twice by the Washington Senators and twice by the Mets. He pitched very effectively in his only major-league season. He appeared on a couple of oddball card issues, but was never a part of a mainstream set; he is shown here on his 1978 TCMA Tidewater Tides card. Mardie's son Nate also made it to the big leagues as a pitcher with the Detroit Tigers in the late 1990s.
