ALPHABETIC LIST OF
THE 50 BRAVES PLAYERS OF THE 1970'S
WHO DIDN'T MAKE MY ORIGINAL 100 FAVORITE PLAYER LIST
#40 JIM PANTHER
ATLANTA BRAVES 1973
During Jim's first major league season, he had a teammate named Reggie Jackson. During his second year, his manager was Ted Williams. In his third and final year, he had a teammate named Hank Aaron. When you look at it that way, his career seems pretty successful, if you can overlook his 7-13 career record.
He won only two games during his year with the Braves, the last one on July 16, 1973 that also featured the only career save of Jimmy Freeman! (I debated if that last sentence warranted an exclamation mark and I just decided to go for it.)
Despite playing those three years in the majors, Jim Panther never had his own TOPPS baseball card.
But during my futile Internet search for one, I did find a reproduction of this lobby card from The Pink Panther Strikes Again.
