1982 Topps, John Harris

#313 John Harris

Here is the fourth and final card of John Harris that I have to post. This one, like the last two, was signed at a Wingnut game in 2011 while John was managing the Amarillo Sox.

John's big league career spanned parts of three seasons with the Angels from 1979 to 1981. During that time, he got 120 at-bats over 56 games and hit .258 with 5 home runs and 16 RBI.

John's ascent to the Majors was fairly quick as he made his debut at the very end of his third professional season. Unfortunately, the Angles had some guy named Rod Carew manning first base at that time and it was hard for John to get any decent playing time. Nevertheless, he kept playing AAA ball through the 1985 season, but he never made it back to the Major Leagues.

Maybe I am a little bit strange, but John looks like a young Steve Guttenberg in this photo.
