‘Same Card, Different Paths’ – Card #22
1967 Topps – Card #581 – AKA – ‘The Tom Seaver Rookie Card’
Bill Denehy – Denehy’s career lasted 3 brief seasons. He appeared in 49 games and finished his career with a 1-10 record along with 1 save. His high ERA of 4.56 coupled with his 63:61 K:walk ratio assisted in his quick exit from the big leagues.
Tom Seaver – Seaver was a Rookie of the Year winner, a 3-time Cy Young award winner, and a member of the 1969 World Series Champion New York Mets. His Hall of Fame resume includes 311 wins, a career 2.86 ERA, 3,640 strikeouts and being a 12-time All-star. Seaver was one of the most dominant pitchers in the 1970’s – and he deservedly earned the nickname ‘Tom Terrific’!
