Card #629 -- Cleveland Indians Team
Their ace pitcher was a workhorse in 1972. Gaylord Perry won 24 games en route to a Cy Young award, but the rest of the staff found it hard to keep a winning record. And so it continued in 1973, except that Perry wasn't able to get more than a .500 record either. They finished in sixth place in the A.L. East that year.
That had to be a thorn in the side to all those Tribe fans who remembered the glory days when their staff included Bob Feller, Bob Lemon, Early Wynn and Mike Garcia.
