Time to go and give former all-star catcher Johnny Roseboro a “caeer Capping” and “missing” 1971 card as he closed out a very nice career after the 1970 season:
Roseboro played the final 46 games of his career with the Washington
Senators in 1970, posting a .233 batting average with 20 hits over 86
It was nice 14-year career that saw him named to four all-star teams,
while taking home two Gold Gloves, both while still with the Los Angelos
Dodgers, for whom he played 11-years and had his finest seasons as a
He would be a member of three world champion clubs while in L.A., in
1959, 1963 and 1965, and would help manage the incredible pitching staff
that included the likes of Sandy Koufax, Don Drysdale and Don Sutton.
Not too shabby!
Over all he batted .249 for his career, with 1206 hits in 4847 at-bats,
hitting 104 homers and driving in 548 runs in 1585 games.
