MISSING IN ACTION- 1979 PAUL SIEBERT

Admittedly, I am pushing it with today’s “missing” player, but I did find a really good Topps photo to use so I created one anyway: a 1979 Paul Siebert of the New York Mets:


Siebert appeared in 27 games for the Mets during the 1978 season, posting an 0-2 record with a 5.14 earned run average with a single save over 28 innings of work.
Those numbers mirror his previous season’s work in 1977, for which I created a “missing” 1978 card not too long ago.
The 1978 season would be the last taste of big league ball for Siebert, closing out a five year career that saw him go 3-8 with a 3.77 ERA over 87 games and 129 innings pitching for the Houston Astros, Sand Diego Padres and Mets.

  2. This is part of the "haul" the Mets got at the 1977 trading deadline for Dave Kingman. The other part of that deal: Bobby Valentine. Kingman would of course go on to play for a total of 4 teams in 1977 landing with the Angels and Yankees.

  3. How about making '79 Topps cards of Jesse Orosco and Mike Scott?
