I came across this image of Bob Barton at the end of his career, so I figured I’d create a “missing” 1975 Topps card for him to cap it all off:
Barton played in 30 games for San Diego in 1974, the last Major League games he’d suit up for in his 10-year career.
He batted .235 that season, with 19 hits over 81 at-bats.
For his career he finished off with a .226 average over 393 games,
mainly as all as a catcher with the San Francisco Giants, San Diego
padres and Cincinnati Reds between 1965-1974.
Of course I’ll always remember him for his hilarious 1972 Topps “In Action” card, which always struck me as a riot!
