MISSING IN ACTION-"IN ACTION" #4: 1972 TONY OLIVA

You'd think that Topps would give an "In Action" card in their 1972 set to the reigning American League batting champ!
Oh well, then allow me to show my design for a Tony Oliva "in action" specimen here:


Oliva was coming off of his third batting title, hitting .337 with 22 homers and 107 runs batted in.
He also lead the league with a .546 slugging percentage, getting named to his eighth straight all-star game.
Really is a shame injuries slowed down a sure path to the Hall of Fame.
