#709 George Frazier
Why this card is awesome: Because here's a bit of a mystery. Check out Frazier's page at The Baseball Cube. According to that, he never played at Holyoke. But digging a little deeper, it seems that Holyoke was an AA-level minor league affiliate of Milwaukee in 1977. The Baseball Cube shows his minor league stats with Milwaukee and A-level and AAA-level, but not AA-level. So I guess they left out those stats for some reason.
Frazier was traded at various times with or for an impressive list of players: Buck Martinez, Rafael Santana, Otis Nixon, Toby Harrah, Ron Hassey, Rick Sutcliffe, Joe Carter, Ron Davis, and more.
This was Frazier's last card.
Cool stat: Frazier had the worst ERA of anyone to appear in at least 100 games between 1977 and 1987 without starting a game.
