Today I wanted to go and give long time starter Steve Barber a “Career Capper” in the 1975 set.
Take a look at my card:
Barber wrapped up a nice 15-year career as a Major League pitcher after
appearing in 13 games for the San Francisco Giants in 1974, posting a
0-1 record with a 5.27 earned run average over 13.2 innings of work.
His best years were as a Baltimore Oriole, with whom he came up with in
1960, and for whom he posted a 20-win season in 1963, three seasons of
sub-3.00 ERA, and leading the American league with eight shutouts in
Once he left Baltimore he became somewhat of a journeyman pitcher both
as a starter and an arm out of the bullpen, pitching for the New York,
Yankees, Seattle Pilots, Chicago Cubs, Atlanta Braves, California Angels
He finished his career with a 121-106 record, with a 3.36 ERA, 21
shutouts, 14 saves and 1309 K’s over 466 games and 1999 innings.
