David Wilson Campbell

Soup is not the most original nickname but it was one hung on Dave Campbell. After retiring from baseball he went to be a color analyst on ESPN and other networks. His voice can also be heard on several baseball video games.

He was signed as an amateur free agent before the 1964 season by the Detroit Tigers. He played in Detroit for three seasons before being traded to the Padres in December of 1969 with Pat Dobson for Joe Niekro. He played 3 and a half seasons for the Padres before being traded to the Cardinals for Dwain Anderson. He played 13 games in Saint Louis before being traded to Houston with cash for Tommie Agee.

I remember Dave Campbell more as analyst than I do as a player. I obtained the card off of ebay.
