1977 Topps Baseball #15 - Don Gullett

  • Don Gullett signed with the New York Yankees as a free agent before the 1977 season. I remember really being bummed out since the Cincinnati Reds lost both Gullett and Tony Perez.
  • 1977 Stats:
    • 14-4, .778 winning percentage (led AL), 3.58 ERA in 22 starts
    • 0-1, 18.00 ERA in American League Championship Series (allowed four runs in two innings pitched in game 1
    • 0-1, 6.39 ERA in World Series. Started game 1 and had no decision in 8 innings pitched. Started and lost game 5.
  • 1977 Highlights:
  • Over the years, I wonder how many card backs had Gene Autry strumming a guitar.
  • Other Don Gullett card blog entries: 19791976, 19761975, 1973

  1. Gullett was one of those rare players when I was a kid who escaped my derision despite playing for two teams that I hated back then -- the Reds and Yankees.

    I don't know how he did that. Probably by being injured all the time.
