Backorder? What Backorder?

Not long ago, I shared the results of my Diamond Giveaway delivery, including the backordered 1971 Dick Such.

Here, in all it's glory, is my 1971 Dick Such.

It has 4 rough corners, but fills a need in my Senators wantlist so I don't care.

You know you're not getting any run support when you put up a 2.81 ERA and go 0-16. That stat line is the only one Such would have in the majors. He played in 21 games going 1-5 with a 7.56 ERA. It's too bad his career was so short, I could have been chasing a bunch of Suchs.


  1. That York team had an OBP of .302 and a SLG of .276 as a team. That Eastern League was a big time pitchers league (teams scored 3.24 runs per game), but still York was especially awful.

  2. any post related to this guy just makes me smile...

  3. Hi, I liked your blog and I invite you ...

    Ah, never mind. Just wanted to say how does Topps put a low-numbered '71 on backorder?

  4. Wow 0-16 unreal and with a 2.81 ERA that is almost unreal to think about.

    I've been reading this blog for a while and finally decided to make my own
