MISSING IN ACTION-1970 CAP PETERSON

Here's a "missing" 1970 Topps card for a guy who already capped off his career in 1969, outfielder Cap peterson:


By the time this card would have been released, Peterson was out of the Majors for good, ending an eight-year career in the big leagues playing for the San Francisco Giants, Washington Senators and Cleveland Indians.
In 1969 he appeared in 76 games, good for 137 plate appearances and 110 official at-bats.
He hit .227 for the Tribe, with 25 hits, eight runs scored, a single homer and 14 runs batted in.
After his playing days he went into the family business, and sadly I read that he passed away at the young age of 37 in 1980 from a kidney illness.
