Norm Charlton on baseball cards

Norm Charlton pitched thirteen seasons in the major leagues, mostly for the Reds and the Mariners. He was one of the "Nasty Boys" of the World Champion 1990 Reds, one of the first dominant bullpens. In 605 major league games he went 51-54 with 97 saves and a 3.71 ERA. In 17 postseason games he 3-1 with 2 saves and a 1.08 ERA. Now a fishing guide, owner of Norm Charlton's Big League Adventures in Rockport, TX, he kindly answered my questions about baseball cards.

"I do not really collect cards, although I do have quite a few.  I think there is a Tom Browning card with my photo on it.  I enjoy cards, think they are great for baseball history as well as kids and collectors."
