1977 Topps Baseball #436 - Turn Back The Clock - Bob Keegan

  • I had no idea who Bob Keegan was when this card came out. I still didn't know much about him before making this entry
  • Keegan spent six seasons (1953-1958) pitching for the Chicago White Sox. Bob didn't make it to the majors until he was 33 years old. Keegan was stuck in the New York Yankees organization from 1945-1952. The Chicago White Sox purchased him from AAA Syracuse after the 1952 season.
  • Bob's best season was in 1954 when he was 16-9 with a 3.09 ERA in 27 starts
  • Bob pitched in his last major league game on July 24, 1958. He pitched in the minors through the 1960 season.
  • Here is the boxscore of the no-hitter.
