MISSING IN ACTION- 1972 BRUCE CHRISTENSEN

Here's a "missing" 1972 Topps card I created for one season wonder Bruce Christensen of the California Angels.
Take a look:


Christensen appeared in 29 games for the Halos in 1971, good for 71 plate appearances while he took up the shortstop position.
Overall he hit a very respectable .270 with 17 hits over 63 official at-bats, with a double, four runs and three runs batted in.
Those would be the only Major League games he'd play in for his career, toiling in the Minor League for various teams between 1966 and 1976, playing primarily for the Angels and San Francisco Giants organizations.
I'm having a blast creating cards for players with short careers like this. 
Perhaps I need to rethink this and start creating cards for anyone who got to appear in a Major League game period!
That'll keep this blog going for years!

  1. That would be great making cards for anyone who appeared in a major league game. Very challenging. Your "Missing in Action" is my absolute favorite thing you do here. Thanks for the morning entertainment!
