Time to give that cool dude Lowell Palmer a “missing” 1975 Topps card that wraps up his short but memorable career as far as cards go:
Palmer appeared in 22 games for the Padres, posting a 2 and 5 record with a 5.67 earned run average over 73 innings.
We all remember him for his sweet shades on his early cards from 1970
through 1972, they’ve become sort of the stuff of legend when it comes
His time as a big league pitcher lasted 5 seasons between 1969 and 1974,
going 5-18 with a 5.29 ERA with a single shutout and 239 strikeouts
over 106 games and 316.2 innings of work.
But oh those shades....
