RIP - Marty Pattin


Marty Pattin, who broke in with the Angels, but had his first baseball card in 1969 as a member of the Seattle Pilots, passed away on October 3, 2018 at age 75.


Pattin appeared in 52 games for the Angels as a rookie in 1968, but as I mentioned here, Topps did a bad job of including the Angels' young pitchers in the late 1960s' sets. He was a starter for the expansion Pilots in 1969, and remained with the team for 2 more years.

After 2 seasons with the Red Sox, Marty finished up his career with 7 seasons in Kansas City.
