Let’s go and give former slugger Dom Mincher a career-capping “missing” 1973 card shall we?
Mincher was closing out a very respectable 13-year career in 1972, split
between the Texas Rangers and Oakland A’s, appearing in 108 games with
53 hits in 245 at-bats, which was good for a .216 batting average to go
along with six homers and 44 runs batted in.
Those six homers would give him exactly 200 for his career, not bad considering he only had 4026 official at-bats!
Five times during his career would he top 20 homers, with a high of 27
in 1970 with the Oakland A’s, which isn’t too shabby considering the
modern “dead-ball” era the late-60’s/early-70’s were.
Along with those 200 homers he’d finish with 1003 hits, 530 runs scored
and 643 runs batted in with a .249 average playing for the Washington
Senators/Minnesota Twins, California Angels, Seattle Pilots, and
Washington Senators/Texas Rangers.
