MISSING IN ACTION- 1973 RICK RENICK

Here's a "missing" 1973 card for former Minnesota Twins payer Rick Renick, who closed out his career after the 1972 season.
Check it out:


Renick appeared in 55 games for the Twins in '72, good for 110 plate appearances and 93 at-bats.
He batted .172 with 16 hits, 10 runs scored, two doubles and four homers while driving in eight runs, mainly playing the outfield with some spot appearances at first base, shortstop and third base.
He played a total of five years in the Major Leagues, all with the Twins, totaling 276 games and 626 plate appearances, while playing pretty much every position but pitcher, catcher and second base.
He retired with a .221 batting average, with 20 homers, 71 runs batted in, 71 runs scored and 122 hits.

  1. Cool card. I looked him up. 1972 was his last year in the majors. He actually played in the minors through 1978!
