MISSING IN ACTION- 1976 PAT SCANLON: "1976 PROJECT"

Here's another Montreal Expos player that was "missing" from the 1976 set, and the next player in my ongoing "1976 Project" for "Reader Jim", Pat Scanlon.
Take a look:


During the 1975 season Scanlon appeared in 60 games for the Expos, with 126 plate appearances.
He hit .183 over 109 at-bats, with 20 hits, two homers and 15 runs batted in while manning third base.
It would be the only season where he'd see any significant playing time,  as he'd only get into 11 games the following year before moving on to San Diego for the 1977 season, where he managed to get into 47 games with 91 plate appearances (for which he did get a card in the 1978 set, airbrush and all).
However Scanlon would never play another game on the Major League level again, finishing up his career with 120 games, 219 at-bats, 41 hits and a lifetime .187 batting average.
