1972 Topps - Tom McCraw.

Listening to the Rangers leading 10-1 in the bottom of the seventh in Arlington. Surely they won't blow this lead, not like last night, not like the night before. This whole blowing leads thing is becoming a bothersome habit.

Tom McCraw looks a little bothered on his 1972 Topps card, number 767. Maybe it was the Senators dismal performance the one year he was with them. Maybe he misses playing for the White Sox. It could be the bright red cap that he normally wears for hunting but forgot to leave at home on this photo day. Perhaps it's the fact that he is on a Rangers card when he never appeared in a Rangers uniform.

As Tommy demonstrates, there are enough other reasons to worry without blowing decent leads.
