MISSING IN ACTION- 1975 HERB HUTSON

Here's a "missing" card for a guy who played the only games of his Major League career in 1974, for the Chicago Cubs: pitcher Herb Hutson.
Check out my card creation:


Hutson appeared in 20 games for the Cubs in '74, good for 28.2 innings of work.
He posted a 0-2 record with a 3.45 earned run average, with two starts thrown into those 20 appearances.
He put up some killer seasons in the minors his first three years in pro ball between 1970-1972.
Playing in the Baltimore Orioles organization, he went an incredible 40-8! Posting seasons of 9-1, 17-4 and 14-3 with earned run averages of 1.73, 1.65 and 2.98. 
But, as I've stated earlier, those 20 games he got into in 1974 for the Cubs would encompass the entirety of his career at the top.

  1. It's a genuine crime Topps didn't see the benefit of making a card of someone named Herb Hutson.

  2. This is great. I tried making one for him a while back but could not find a pic. Well done!
