Mike McCormick threw a rain-shortened "no-hitter" on June 12, 1959 despite allowing a hit - the no-hitter went five innings, then he allowed a hit in the 6th, which was eliminated from the official records as rain cancelled the game before the inning was completed.
He made his first appearance on a baseball card in the 1958 Topps set; however, the picture on the card is that of teammate Ray Monzant, who looked a lot like him, but who was right-handed. He got to feature on many other cards, though, given his relatively long career.
