Harry came from the Cardinals, and then went back to them again when he was done at Shea. He lost a game in the 1973 World Series despite not giving up an earned run. And, just to show you how much the game has changed in the last generation, his total of four saves in 1974 led the club in that department! He's pictured here on 1974 Topps.
