1981 Donruss, John Fulgham

#70 John Fulgham

The next card from the set is from John Fulgham. John had a brief Major League career that spanned just parts of two seasons with the Cardinals. His rookie season in 1979 was pretty good, though, as he finished the year 10-6 with a 2.53 ERA. The most impressive stat from that season was that he finished 10 of the 19 games that he started.

All of those complete games must have took a toll on his arm, though. The next season, he pitched in just 15 games before missing all of the following season. He came back in 1982 and pitched in 18 minor league games. He pitched in 5 minor league games the next year before calling it a career.

John finished with a 14-12 record and 2.84 ERA with 123 strikeouts.

I sent this card to him towards the beginning of November and I had it back eleven days later.
