#664 - Steve Farr

What a card: After seven years in the minors, Steve Farr appeared in his first major league games in 1984, throwing 116 innings in 31 games. But the Indians cut him in March, 1985.

My observation on the front: I like rookie cards like this because it shows him with a team with which he's not commonly associated.

More opinion from me: Thank goodness there are no visible pit stains.

Something you might know: Farr was a productive relief pitcher for the Royals and the Yankees. He saved at least 20 games four times in his career.

Something you might not know: Farr now runs a trucking company in his name in North Carolina.

My observation on the back: Farr had some control problems early in his career. Check out his walk-innings pitched totals in 1978.
