Today's entry into Project Rookie Card is a quartet of Richard Dotson rookies.  Dotson had a good run for the mid-80s White Sox.  His 1983 season was especially impressive.  LaMarr Hoyt may have gotten all of the publicity (and hardware) that year, but Dotson was even better.  He posted a 130 ERA+ over 240 innings, good for 4.9 WAR (wins above replacement).  Compare that to Hoyt's 115 ERA+ over 260.2 innings, which was worth 3.7 WAR.

Richard Dotson has been a great signer during his time as pitching coach for the Charlotte Knights, so these signed rookies weren't hard to acquire with a bit of help from my friends that graph the International League.
