Braves Collection: James Parr

2009 Topps Heritage
Not to be critical of Parr himself, but Topps really outdid themselves on the back of this card. It reads, "What a debut he had with the Braves: 14 1/3 innings over a trio of starts before he was scored upon." Totally true, but it sort of seems pointless when you consider that over the  remaining 8 innings of his 2008 season, including the remainder of his third start, and his fourth and fifth start, Parr gave up 13 earned runs.

Dog hair once again makes an appearance on one of my scans.

Thanks to BA Benny for the card!
