MISSING IN ACTION- 1970 BUBBA MORTON

Here’s a “missing” 1970 Topps card for the California Angels’ Bubba Morton:


Morton played in 87 games during the 1969 season while manning the outfield, batting .244 with 42 hits in 172 official at-bats, with 206 total plate appearances.
Those would actually be the final games of his seven-year career, which were spent with the Angels, Detroit Tigers and Milwaukee Braves.
All told he finished with a lifetime .267 average with 248 hits in 928 at-bats, with 37 doubles, eight triples and 14 homers in the mix, before moving on to some playing time in Japan.

  1. Nice one. I see the 1969 centennial patch on the sleeve. That was on a lot of 1970 cards, so it makes this one look legit.
