MISSING IN ACTION- 1977 VIC HARRIS

Here’s a “missing” 1977 Topps card for former St. Louis Cardinal Vic Harris:


Harris played in 97 games for the Cards in 1976, with a whopping 282 plate appearances. That’s a ton for a guy who was missing from a card set the following year.
In those 97 games, Harris hit .228 with 59 hits in 259 official at-bats, with 21 runs scored and 19 runs batted in.
That would be his only year in St. Louis, with the previous four seasons split between the Texas Rangers and Chicago Cubs, while the last three of his career were spent with the San Francisco Giants and Milwaukee Brewers.
All told he’d retire with a .217 batting average based on his 349 hits over 1610 at-bats in 579 big league games.
