Pictured in air brushed Sox cap, Rich already played last MLB game on 7/20/1971….Prior that time played for San Francisco…Card represents a very short period of time when he was on the White Sox roster…A history is as follows according Baseballreference.com.

March 19, 1972: Returned to the San Francisco Giants by the Chicago White Sox following previous purchase.

Spent 1972 in AAA Richmond and quit after that…High water mark was 1968 when he won 18 games in the PCL…add two win in majors as late season call up gave him a combined 20 professional victories…Never the less, Rich struggled when called to the majors….Most prolific season was 1970 when he went 8-9 with 4.85 ERA….Had 26 starts that year…Career mark of 13-14 and 4.94 ERA.
