1975 Topps #566 - Ray Burris
I have been able to add a PSA 9 version of 1975 Topps #566 - Ray Burris to my collection. The 1975 Topps set is new enough that a PSA 9 is not uncommon. In the case of this card there are 52 PSA 9's with a total of 4 cards that have been graded higher than PSA 9.
Ray Burris played 7 seasons with the Cubs and was the ace of the staff for a couple of years. He completed his career with the Cubs with a record of 55 wins and 58 losses. In 1975 he compiled a 15 and 10 record and followed that in 1976 with a record of 15 wins and 13 losses. As a Cubs, Burris appeared in 237 games with an overall ERA of 4.27.
Burris was traded to the Yankees in May 1979 for Dick Tidrow. He played for a total of seven teams over his 16 season career.
