Kellogg's Cereal Box Dream #34 - The Candy Man

John Candelaria had a great start in his second season.  He was 16-7.  He followed that by going 20-5 the next year.  He had a 13-, 14- and 15-win season mixed into the next 16 years.

It added up to a career record of 177-122.  Not bad, but over 19 seasons that's about a 9-6 record per season.  He had 10 seasons with 10+ wins and nine seasons of less than 10 wins.

1977 Kellogg's John Candelaria #07 

1977 Rating                    -- 7  comment -- Nice start to a career with his 16-7 record.

2016 Rating                    -- 4 comment --  He won 20 games in 1977 but that was the high point. 

Is this one of the weakest row of three players in a Kellogg's set?  More later.


  1. Candelaria was pretty good, though. The Pirates had a tall staff....him, Jim Bibby, Kent Tekulve....
