Don Werner played in just 24 games for Texas in 1981 and 1982. He signed and returned this 1983 Topps card in just six days.
Don lasted seven seasons in the bigs with the Reds and Rangers. Three of those years he appeared in less than ten games. His highest number of games was 50 in 1978 for the Reds.
Werner's biggest problem was that he played behind two of the best catchers ever, Johnny Bench and Jim Sundberg. Obviously Bench was the better of the two but Sunny was just about unbelievable on defense. Gotta feel a little sympathy for Don. Traded from the Reds and thinking that he was now away from Bench only to find Sundberg in the way.
