Here’s a 1975 card for former pitcher Barry Lersch, who finished up a six-year Major League career with one single game in 1974 with the St. Louis Cardinals:
After playing the first five years of his big league career with the
Philadelphia Phillies, Lersch took the mound for a single game on

317 strikeouts and six saves over 169 appearances and 570.1 innings of
