MISSING IN ACTION- 1979 STEVE BURKE

Here's a "missing" 1979 card for a guy that I admit I may be stretching: former pitcher Steve Burke, who played for the Seattle Mariners.
Take a look at my card:


Burke only played during the 1977 and 1978 seasons in his career, and it was in 1978 that he pitched in 18 of his career 24 games, all out of the 'pen for the Seattle club.
During that season he posted a 0-1 record with a 3.49 earned run average and 16 strikeouts over 49 innings of work.
Still, since I did come across this nice picture of him I couldn't help but whip-up a card for him.
He did appear in one of the multi-player rookie cards in the 1978 set, but now we have a dedicated card for him and his career 0-2 record, with a 3.34 ERA and 22 K's over 24 career games and 64.2 innings.

  1. Nice card! Hey, Topps has done cards for guys with less of a resume than Burke so you're not really stretching to do one as far as I see.
