Here's another big-time player who should have had an "In Action" card in the 1972 Topps set: San Francisco Giants slugger Willie McCovey.
Take a look at my "missing" In-Action card:
"Stretch" was one of THE most feared power hitters of the era, muscling homer after homer on his way to 521 career blasts by the time he was done in 1980.
A Rookie of the Year Award in 1959, an M.V.P. in 1969, and a Hall of Fame induction in 1986, he did it all.
It's amazing to think about those Giants teams in the 1960's that had McCovey, Willie Mays and Orlando Cepeda anchoring their line-up...
