MISSING IN ACTION- 1970 STEVE JONES

Here's a "missing" 1970 card for former pitcher Steve Jones of the inaugural Kansas City Royals.
Check out my card design:


Jones appeared in 20 games for the Royals in 1969, good for a 2-3 record with a 4.23 earned run average and 31 strikeouts over 44.2 innings.
Of those 20 games, four were starts, and it would all end up being the last action he had on the Major League level.
He played three seasons in the Big Leagues, all for different teams: 1967 with the White Sox, 1968 with the Senators, and his final year in 1969 with the Royals.
He finished his career with a 5-7 record, with a 4.44 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 38 games and 81 innings of work.
