MISSING IN ACTION- 1976 TOM McCRAW: "1976 PROJECT"

The next card up in the on-going "1976 Project" is a "missing" card for former first baseman and outfielder Tom McCraw.
Check out my card first:


1975 would end up being the final year of his career, one that lasted 13 years and saw him play for the Chicago White Sox, Washington Senators, Cleveland Indians, and California Angels.
During the 1975 season he appeared in a scant 23 games, with 59 plate appearances.
He hit a very respectable .275 based on 14 hits over 51 at-bats, with seven runs scored and five runs batted in and a couple of homers thrown in.
Over his career he hit .246 with just under 1000 hits on 3956 at-bats, 484 runs scored, 75 home runs and 404 RBI's, and 143 stolen bases.
After his playing days were over he went on to a lengthy career as a hitting coach, serving as such for various clubs over 23 years between 1975 and 2005.

  1. Another awesome creation here. It should be listed on the back of the 1976 Cleveland Indians team checklist card!
