Happy Reds birthday, Don Zimmer!


January 17, 1931

Don Zimmer‘s playing career spanned twelve seasons and 1095 games; only 63 of those games came as a Red. While Topps recognized him as a member of the Reds in their 1962 issue, he wore a Mets cap; his 1963 Topps card called him a Dodger, though the photo is still from his Mets days. The Cards That Never Were blog rectified this a few years ago with a custom 1963 Fleer card, finally picturing Zim in his Reds uniform.
