MISSING IN ACTION: 1971 GUS GIL

Here’s a “missing” 1971 Topps card for former Milwaukee Brewers infielder Gus Gil:

Gil appeared in 64 games for Milwaukee during the 1970 season, batting .185 with 22 hits in 119 official at-bats with 12 runs scored and 12 runs batted in.
He put in a four-year Major League career between 1967 and 1971, missing the 1968 season after coming up with the Cleveland Indians before playing for the Seattle Pilots in 1969.
The final two years of his career were with the Brewers, wrapping up with 14 games at second and third base in 1971 while hitting .156, bringing his lifetime average to .186 with 87 hits over 468 at-bats in 221 games.
