MISSING IN ACTION-"IN ACTION" #11: 1972 TONY PEREZ

Today we go ahead and give the "Big Dog", Tony Perez, an "In Action" card in the 1972 set.
Take a look:


One of the anchors of the "Big Red Machine", Perez was an R.B.I. machine, topping 90 or more eight of ten seasons during the 1970's.
2700+ hits, 375+ homers, 1600+ runs batted in, and over 500 doubles over the course of 23 seasons in the Major Leagues.
Enough said for the future Hall of Famer, finally getting welcomed into the doors of Cooperstown in 2000.

  1. Where can I buy one! Love it. Neat how you show him in the old uni too. I don't think they switched to the "sansa-belt" polyester ones until the 1972 season. Doggie is universally loved in Cincinnati and vastly underrated even though he is in the HoF.

  2. I agree with Tony about the era appropriate uniform he is wearing for this card. Nice job! Where can I buy all of your Missing in Action cards?!

    1. Ha! Thanks guys! Never had any intention of actually printing these cards, or any others I've done for that matter!
      Perhaps I need to kick the idea around in the future! ;)
      Actually, maybe I'll compile a book, sort of a printed version of this blog. You never know...
