Today I give you a “missing” 1970 card for Phillies pitcher Al Raffo, who played his only season in the Majors in 1969:
Raffo appeared in 45 games for Philadelphia, picking up a save to go along with a 1 and 3 record in 72.1 innings pitched.
He had 38 strikeouts against 25 walks, finishing 17 games with a 4.11 earned run average.
Sadly for him that would be it as far as a Major League career went, as
he’d toil in the Phillies’ minor league system for the next two years
before hanging them up after the 1971 season.
He played his entire 10-year pro career for the Phillies, starting in
1962 as a 20-year old and making his way through their system in every
level of ball.
