1981 Donruss, Pat Zachry
#275 Pat Zachry
Next up is this Pat Zachry card that I got signed through the mail. I sent this card to Pat in January and I had it back twelve days later.
Pat pitched in the Majors for ten seasons with four different clubs- the Reds, Mets, Dodgers, and Phillies. He split his time between starting and relieving and he finished his career with a 69-67 record with 3 saves and a 3.52 ERA.
His best season was his rookie year with the Reds in 1976. That season, he went 14-7 with a 2.74 ERA and 143 strikeouts. He even racked up two more victories in the post-season. The season was good enough to give him a piece of the National League Rookie of the Year Award, as he had to share it with the Padres Butch Metzger.
