Classic Sports Card of The Day

02 Oct

1966 Topps baseball card of former major league pitcher Sonny Siebert, who threw for 12 seasons, half of which were for the Cleveland Indians before splitting the last 6 with 5 different clubs. Often overshadowed in the Tribe’s rotation by Sam McDowell and Luis Tiant, he consistently finished in the top 3 of American League hurlers in strikeouts and ERA, usually behind McDowell. Siebert was drafted by the NBA’s St. Louis Hawks the same year Cleveland picked him in the MLB draft. He tossed a no-hitter in 1966 against the Washington Senators. Siebert, now 86, is enjoying retirement living in St. Louis.
