MISSING IN ACTION-"IN ACTION" #8: 1972 AL KALINE

Hey "baseballbrent", here you go, a 1972 "In Action" card of Detroit Tigers all-time great Al Kaline…
Check it out:


Brent had a legitimate point regarding Tiger players in the 1972 that were missing from the "In Action" sub-set: guys like Kaline, Willie Horton, Mickey Lolich and Bill Freehan!
Well here's the first of what I hope to be a few "fixes" to this problem.
Al Kaline: future Hall of Famer, member of the 3000 hit club, 399 home runs, and possibly the most popular Tiger player ever!
How Topps could leave superstars like this out of the "In Action" sub-set, while giving other guys like Jerry Johnson and Tom Haller an "extra" card is beyond me...
Slowly but surely we'll have all the omitted stars represented, so stay tuned…
