MISSING IN ACTION- 1976 BOB HEISE: "1976 PROJECT"

A few days ago I posted about why did Topps give Bob Heise a card in their 1970 set.
Well today we go ahead and give Heise a card in a set he SHOULD have been in, the 1976 set, as part of my ongoing "1976 Project":


In 1975 Heise appeared in 63 games for the Boston Red Sox, collecting 138 plate appearances with 126 at-bats.
He batted .214 with 27 hits, three doubles and 21 runs batted in, while scoring 12 runs.
So while he got a card in 1970 based on his four games and 13 plate appearances, he was left out of the set six years later with almost sixteen times more playing time!
Go figure…
Heise was left out of a couple more sets during his career, so keep an eye out for those "missing" cards here in the near future.
