This was another guy I had not heard of and it may amaze the Night Owl and GCRL, but I didn't know anything about him for years after I got the card.
Baseball-almanac.com, which I use to get my stats for these posts, had this great quote.
"The pitcher has to find out if the hitter is timid, and if the hitter IS timid, he has to remind the hitter he's timid." - Don Drysdale
Don Drysdale played 14 years for the Dodgers. Big D--Drysdale, not the custom card maker from Hey, That's Mine, appeared in 516 games, compiling a 209-166 record, a 2.95 ERA and 2,486 strikeouts. He threw 167 complete games and 49 shutouts. He was a two time 20 game winner and posted 17+ wins six times.
Drysdale made 7 All-Star teams and 5 trips to the World Series. He was 3-3 with a 2.95 ERA in World Series Play. This included his complete game shutout of the Yankees in the 1963 Series. The Dodgers won 3 of the 5 World Series during Drysdales era.
Drysdale's best year was 1962 when he went 25-9 with a 2.83 ERA, 19 complete games and 2 shutouts. He just happened to win the Cy Young that year as well.
He was voted into the Baseball Hall of Fame by the BBWAA in 1984.
