1981 Donruss, Ed Halicki

#53 Ed Halicki

Next up is the former Giant and Angel, Ed Halicki. I sent this card to Ed in November and I had it back about three weeks later.

Ed spent six and a half years of his seven year career with San Francisco before spending his final half season in Anaheim. During that time, he was 56-66 with a save and a 3.62 ERA. His best season was in 1977 when he went 16-12 with a 3.32 ERA and 168 strikeouts.

Ed's claim to fame is tossing a no-hitter against the Mets in 1975. He finished that day with two walks and ten strikeouts.

Ed's ballpoint pen signature is kind of hard to make out over his jersey. But, with the dark color of the jersey, nothing is really going to stand out on it.
