1976 Topps Cincinnati Reds Teams Set – Card #514 – Dan Driessen
Dan Driessen’s big league career last for 15 seasons. Not surprisingly, his most successful run came during his years in Cincinnati. From 1973-84, Driessen called Riverfront Stadium home as he patrolled the corners of the infield and outfield for the Reds.
A utility player, and solid athlete, Driessen used his skills to get himself on the field. A great reserve, he offered the team a role player that was able to play 4 of 8 defensive positions.
Offensively, Driessen was serviceable. A lifetime .267 hitter, Driessen’s greatest gift was his speed. In 15 seasons, he stole 154 bases en route to scoring 746 career runs.
Driessen was a part of the 1975 & 1976 World Series championship winning teams in Cincy. In 6 games, he went 7-for-16 with a home run.
