Skip was the Mets' best pitcher during most of his tenure in New York; he was their relief ace during one of their long losing periods. He's pictured here towards the beginning of his career, on 1972 Topps. Six more cards spanning his career are shown below the stats; the first of them, his 1965 Topps rookie card, is also the rookie card for big-league manager Rene Lachemann, semi-star pitcher Blue Moon Odom, and Hall-of-Famer Catfish Hunter.  Also, a note on the stats box: Skip's batting record is included as well as his pitching, since he actually made his big-league debut as an 18-year-old third baseman for the 1965 Kansas City Athletics.  A quick perusal of his hitting line for that season offers a strong incentive for him to have tried his hand at pitching.
