MISSING IN ACTION- 1974 OSCAR BROWN

Today I'll go ahead and give former Atlanta Braves outfielder Oscar Brown a "missing" card in the 1974 set, take a look at the card I came up with:


Nice and clean, like the rest of that '74 set.
Brown actually finished up a brief five-year career in 1973, appearing in 22 games, with 62 plate appearances and 58 official at-bats.
He batted .207 with 12 hits, three of them doubles, and three runs scored, and finished his career with a .244 batting average, with 77 hits, 14 doubles, two triples, four homers and 28 runs batted in over 160 games, all with Atlanta.
His brother was former big league outfielder "Downtown" Ollie Brown, most notably of the original San Diego Padres.

  1. Looks great as always. So many 1974 packs I opened as a kid, saw Atlanta Outfield on the top, and thought "Hank Aaron"...and it was Dusty Baker,
