Ok, so this guy really didn't put in a lot of tome to warrant a card the following year, but I did find a great high-resolution image of him so I went ahead and designed a card anyway.
Check out my 1973 Bob Rauch Topps card:
Rauch's entire Major League career encompassed 19 games for the Mets in 1972, saving one and posting a record of 0-1.
Drafted by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1967, Rauch would end up playing for the Dodgers, Mets, Indians and A's minor league systems, finally calling it a career in 1975.
I think it's fun working on cards of guys that barely registered a "blip" on the Major League scene, and I think I'll try coming up with more and more of them as time goes on.
Hope you enjoy them as well…
