MISSING IN ACTION- 1973 LARRY HOWARD

Here's a guy that really should have had a card in the 1973 set, former catcher Larry Howard of the Houston Astros. So I designed one, check it out:


Howard played in 54 games during the 1972 season, with 175 plate appearances on his way to a .223 batting average with 35 hits, 16 runs scored and 13 runs batted in.
I actually feel that Howard should have had cards in the 1972 and 1974 sets as well, so watch for those in the future as I tacked them on to "the list" too.
Howard's Major League career would span 1970 thru 1973, playing all but four of his 133 lifetime games for Houston, as he closed out his short career playing for Atlanta at the tail end of his final season.
His final numbers: 86 hits with 36 runs scored, 47 runs batted in and six homers, with 19 doubles and a .236 average.
