Ray Burris

1981 Topps

Burris won 108 games in a 15-year career that began in 1973 and concluded in 1987. He broke in with the Chicago Cubs and by 1975 was a mainstay in their rotation. He won 15 games that year, then 15 more in 1976 and 14 in 1977. However, he would not reach double-digit wins again for almost seven seasons. In between, Burris made stops with the New York Yankees, New York Mets and Montreal Expos. He landed with the Oakland A’s in 1984 and won 13 games but was traded to the Milwaukee Brewers following the season. Burris went 9-13 for the Brewers who then released him. He was picked up by the St. Louis Cardinals and pitched in 23 games for them in 1986. He returned to Milwaukee in 1987 for the final season of his career.
