720th Place - Don Carman

Card #415

I might be retroactively remembering this, but I'm sure this theme song popped into my head whenever coming across a Don Carman card as a kid.

1987 was the high water mark for Carman.  He started 35 games for the Phillies, going 13-11 with a 4.22 ERA.  That wasn't too shabby for 1987, considering it was the year of the juiced ball.

Here's a random video of Don talking about his days dealing with the press.  And here's an awesome story about him replying to fan mail and autograph requests...16 years after receiving them!
