Here’s a “missing” card for a guy who has a few of them actually, former pitcher Ed Sprague of the Cincinnati Reds:
Sprague appeared in 33 games for the National League Champions in 1972,
posting a 3-3 record with a 4.13 earned run average out of the bullpen.
He would go on to play another four seasons in the Major Leagues,
finishing with a 17-23 record along with a 3.84 ERA, nine saves and 188
strikeouts over 408 innings and 198 games, 23 of which were starts.
His son, Ed Sprague Jr would also play in the Majors later on in the
1990’s and 2000’s, as a third baseman for 11-years, mainly with the
Toronto Blue Jays.
