1978 Topps Doug Rader

The Red Rooster!


I don't remember much about Rader as a player, but he was pretty good. I think he managed for a bit too.

That being said, how cool was it to be eight years old and see cards of a new team? For me, all Blue Jays and Mariners were cool the first two years!

Playing around 10 years, he accumulated more than 1300 hits, which isn't a bad number. But when you are released mid-season by a horrible Blue Jays team, now that's a bit scary.

And for the record, Rader's win percentage as a manager was .437. Ouch!
