MISSING IN ACTION- 1974 GARY ROSS

I think a pitcher who appeared in a third of his teams' games the year before deserves a card, don't you?
So I went ahead and designed a 1974 Topps card for San Diego Padre Gary Ross.
Check it out:


For the 1973 season Ross appeared in 59 games for the Padres, finishing 29 of them with a total of 76.1 innings pitched.
He fashioned a 4-4 record with a 5.42 earned run average and 44 strikeouts.
I always remember him towards the end of his career when with the  California Angels, for whom he pitched between 1975 and 1977.
Overall he played for the Chicago Cubs, Padres and Angels between 1968 and 1977, finishing with a 25-47 career record, with a 3.92 ERA and 378 K's over 283 games and 713.2 innings pitched.

    1. I was going to mention that, too...funny that when you see a '74 Topps Padre, it's hard not to think of that! B^)

      Nice card.
