Got a nice flurry of catchers in the mail. As I've mentioned before, I'm a former catcher, so I have a soft spot for the backstop. Let's go through my most recent through-the-mail successes of the armored gentlemen.
Jeff Reed played five of his seventeen years in the bigs for the Reds, catching 329 games for Cincy. He was a part of the 1990 World Series roster and caught Tom Browning's perfect game in 1988. Signed is a 1990 Leaf #505.
Jimmie Schaffer spent the final year of his eight year career with Cincy, seeing action in 4 Reds games. Signed is a 1968 Topps #463.
Don Pavletich spent nine of twelve big league years behind the plate for Cincy, playing in 412 Reds contests, including his debut at a mere 18 years of age. Signed is a 1968 Topps #108.
