Unlock, Number Two!

From Topps Million Card Giveaway, i unlocked my second card. Another player i had never heard of, so off to Google to educate myself, about Mr. Howard, here is what i found out:

He got to play his first major league game at age 20 in 1963 with the White Sox. He remained a White Sox for five seasons and his best years were 1965 (9-8 3.47era 120K in 148IP) & 1966 (9-5 2.30era 85K in 149IP) very respectable numbers. Then i am not sure what happen in 67 he went 3-10 and then in 68 he got bounced around on three teams, to call it a career at the age of 25. The highlight that caught my attention was in 1966 he had four complete games and two shut outs.
