MISSING IN ACTION- 1971 OSSIE BLANCO

Here's a "missing" 1971 card for former 1st baseman Ossie Blanco, take a look at my card:


Blanco played in 34 games for the ChiSox in 1970, his first taste of Major League ball, good for 71 plate appearances and 66 at-bats.
In those at-bats he collected 13 hits, translating to a .197 batting average with eight runs batted in and four runs scored.
He wouldn't appear in another big league game again until 1974, now as a member of the Cleveland Indians, when he suited up for 18 games.
Those two brief seasons would encompass the entirety of Blanco's Major League career, although he did play for 17 years in the Minors, eventually making his way over to the Mexican League until the 1979 season.
