ANOTHER CARDINAL AIRBRUSH CLASSIC FROM THE 1970¹S: 1977 DAVE RADER

Seems the St. Louis Cardinals had their good share of CLASSIC airbrush cards throughout the decade, especially in the 1975 set.
Here’s one from a couple years later in 1977, the Dave Rader card:


Rader found himself in St. Louis as part of the trade that brought Mike Caldwell and John D’Acquisto to the Cardinals for Willie Crawford, John Curtis and Vic Harris on October 20th of 1976.
It would be the first of four teams in four years for him, closing out his 10-year Major League career with the Boston Red Sox in 1980 after years with the Phillies (1979) and Chicago Cubs (1978).
He’d finish up with a .257 batting average with 619 hits over 2405 at-bats in 846 games.

  1. Actually the aforementioned Mike Caldwell's card from that season was an airbrushing classic as well, especially with its lopsided hat.
