Fun Cards: 1971 Topps Doobie Brothers (Tom Johnston and John Hartman)

Utah-born John Noriega had a less-than-stellar career for the Cincinnati Reds. Noriega played two seasons, 1969 and 1970, appearing in a total of 13 games with a 7.36 ERA. He failed to make the post-season roster in 1970 and went on to play with Phillies and Twins minor-league affiliates in 1971.

Noriega passed away in 2001.
