THEN AND NOW: RAY SADECKI: 1960-1977

Haven’t done a “Then and Now” card in a while, and I came across this image of former pitcher Ray Sadecki during his final season in the big leagues so I figured I’d make one up for him:


Though Sadecki appears in the 1977 Topps set as a Milwaukee Brewer, I figured I’d go ahead and show him as a Met since he pitched his last few games with them.
Sadecki put together a nice 18-year career on a big league mound, both as a starter and a reliever between 1960 and 1977.
He was a 20-game winner in 1964 with the St Louis Cardinals, and three-times posted an earned run average under 3.00, with a low of 2.78 in 1967 with the San Francisco Giants.
He retired with a 135-131 record, with a 3.78 ERA and 20 shutouts along with 1614 strikeouts and seven saves over the course of 563 appearances, 328 of which were starts.
