Had a good year as a starter in 1969, then had a tremendous season as a reliever the next year. Compiled a fine career ERA despite struggling badly his last three seasons. Pictured here is a 1970s Kelloggs card, featuring the cracked plastic that is common to those issues. Pictured below is a 1969 Topps Decal, a miniature-sized insert that used the same design as the regular cards that year, but with many different photos. Four more cards are pictured below as well.
