MISSING IN ACTION-"IN ACTION" #37: 1972 PAUL BLAIR

Here's a "missing" 1972 In-Action card for former Baltimore Orioles star outfielder Paul Blair.
Check out my card:


Though a decent hitter in his own right, Blair was a superstar fielding outfielder for the O's, taking home eight Gold Gloves for his excellence in the field, seven consecutively between 1969-1975.
He was known to taunt hitters by playing shallow, then sprinting deep to track down fly balls.
A member of four world champion teams (Orioles in 1966/70; Yankees 1977/78), Blair put together an excellent 17-year career playing between 1964 and 1980 for the Orioles, Yanks and Reds.
He'd finish with a .250 batting average with 1513 hits, 134 homers and 171 stolen bases over 1947 games and 6673 plate appearances.
