MISSING IN ACTION- 1972 ROB ELLIS

Today we go and give Rob Ellis of the Milwaukee Brewers a “missing” 1972 Topps card.
Check it out:


Ellis played in 36 games for the Brewers during his rookie 1971 season, good for a .198 batting average based on his 22 hits over 111 at-bats.
It would be the most action he’d see in any of his three Major League seasons, as he’d be out of the Big Leagues after 22 games in 1974 and just six in 1975.
For his short career he hit .229 with 38 hits in 166 at-bats over 64 scant games.

  1. He was drafted by the Brewers in 1971 on June 8 and made his debut on June 17. He spent August in AAA before returning in September.

  2. This definitely fits in looking like a High Number card...
