MISSING IN ACTION- 1976 CHUCK HOCKENBERY: "1976 PROJECT"

Here was a fun "missing" card for the ongoing "1976 Project" for "Reader Jim", a 1976 Topps card for Chuck Hockenbery, a right-handed pitcher who appeared in 16 games for the California Angels in 1975, making up his entire Major League career:


In his short pro tenure, Hockenbery posted a record of 0-5 with a 5.27 earned run average with one save and 15 strikeouts in 41 innings.
Though his career spanned 1969 through 1978 as a Minor League player, those 1975 games would be the only taste of Major League action he'd see.
Thanks Jim for pointing me in Hockenbery's direction!
