Collection: Roger Craig GOTG

Here is another card from my Dodgers certified autographed card collection.  This is a 2001 Fleer "Greats of the Game" card of former Brooklyn Dodgers hurler Roger Craig.

Never mind that he use to coach the hated San Francisco Giants back when I was a younger man.  Instead, let's remember him as the pitcher who started a couple of World Series games for the Dodgers.  He won Game 5 in the 1955 Series while posting a Dodgers career record of 187 wins to 103 loses.  Craig is famously known for being a master Jedi with the split-finger fastball, and spent much of his professional coaching/managerial career teaching the pitch.

  1. I know that he was a Dodger at one point. But, I always think of him managing the Giants while they played in that ugly dump called Candlestick.
