1976 Topps Cincinnati Reds Teams Set – Card #211 – Clay Carroll
Carroll played in the majors for fifteen seasons, 8 of which were in Cincinnati as a member of the Reds’ pitching staff.
During those 8 seasons, Carroll started 15 games for the club. But he really found his niche in the bullpen as he became their primary closer during the 1972 season. In 486 games with the Reds, Carroll collected 119 saves along with a record of 71-43.
Carroll was a 2-time All-Star with the Reds. He won a championship ring with the team in 1975 but was traded during the offseason before the Reds went on to win their 1976 title.
