MISSING IN ACTION- 1976 GREG TERLECKY: "1976 PROJECT"

Here's a "missing" card for a guy who saw his only Major League action in 1975, pitcher Greg Terlecky, check it out:


Funny enough, the only Topps card Terlecky would appear on is a multi-player rookie card in the 1977 set, as a member of the Chicago White Sox.
But it was as a member of the St. Louis Cardinals in 1975 that Terlecky made his MLB "bones", appearing in 20 games, all if relief, good for an 0-1 record with a 4.45 earned run average over 30.1 innings of work.
It would be the only action he'd see on a Major League mound, spending 9 seasons toiling in the minors for St. Louis, Chicago and Pittsburgh, calling it a career after the 1979 season at Springfield in Double-AA.
