Monster Card Monday: 1963 Claude Raymond

raymondHere an old one from the archive that Tom Zuppa sent in.  It’s Claude Raymond from the 1963 set.  From the looks of it, this is from the original set too. 

In 6 plate appearances, 5’ 10” reliever Raymond (DX*) doubled twice.  In addition, he drove in a run and he walked once.

You don’t want to see Raymond’s 1963 card batting with a runner on third.  It has a total of twelve sixes.  To replicate the one walk, he has six 14s. 

Note: the 12 was placed on the 42 in 1963 (one of my least favorite locations for it back when they moved it around, in my opinion).  That moved the last six to 61. 

Raymond hit four doubles in a span of five years which is pretty high for someone who was a reliever (he did start five games in 1965).  Unfortunately the 1966 season which I am replaying, he hit a very pitcher-esque .111. 

thanks, Tom!

    The card show the 12 on 43, not 42.
