1977 Topps Baseball #508 - Dave Pagan

  • Dave Pagan was chosen by the Seattle Mariners in the 1976 expansion draft (hence the bad airbrush job on this card). Pagan started the season with the Mariners but he struggled. Dave was sent to AAA in early July and then was traded to the Pittsburgh Pirates on July 27 for Rick Honeycutt. Pagan pitched for AAA Columbus until the minor league season was over and then went up to Pittsburgh. He pitched in one game for the Pirates and that was it for his major league career.
  • 1977 Stats:
    • Seattle Mariners: 1-1, 6.14 ERA in 24 games (4 starts)
    • Spokane Indians (AAA): 0-3, 7.56 ERA in 5 games (4 starts)

  1. Pagan is from Saskatoon, a western province of Canada. I bet there's not many players from there (and I'm guessing Pagan is a French name, not like Angel (Pagan) of Hispanic descent)
