1981 Donruss, Rich Dotson

#280 Rich Dotson

Here is the next TTM success from the '81 Donruss set. This one was sent to Rich in 2013 and I got it back a week and a half later.

Rich pitched in the Majors for twelve seasons with the White Sox, Yankees, and Royals. All but two and a half of those seasons were with the Sox and he spent the majority of his career as a starter. Though he had a losing record for his career, which was a result of an 0-4 record in his final season, he still had seven seasons with double digit wins. He finished his career with a 111-113 record with a 4.23 ERA and 973 strikeouts.

Rich's best season was with the Sox in 1983. He was pretty good that year, going 22-7 with a 3.23 ERA and 137 strikeouts. The wins, ERA, and K's were all career bests for him. Despite the great season, he did not make the All Star team that year. Instead, he got his lone All Star selection the following season.

I love those White Sox jerseys.
