MISSING IN ACTION-1975 MARVIN LANE

Here is a missing 1975 Topps card I created for former Detroit Tiger Marvin Lane.
Take a look:

Lane played in 50 games during the 1974 season, easily the most action he ever saw during his five-year career, all with Detroit.
For the year, he batted .233 with 24 hits over 103 at-bats, scoring 16 runs with four doubles, a triple and two homers while driving in nine.
In the three previous years he played in only 22 games total, and after missing the 1975 season he would come back in 1976 to appear in 18 games in Motown before closing the books on his Major League playing time.
All told, he'd finish with a .207 career average with 37 hits and 23 runs scored over 90 games and 210 plate appearances, with three homers and 17 RBI's.

  1. I'm wondering who's in the cage behind him? #3 Gary Sutherland? Love those cameos! ;-)
