Here’s a “missing” 1979 card for former pitcher Rich Hinton, who was coming to the end of his 6-year career at the end of the decade:
Hinton appeared in 29 games for the White Sox in 1978, pitching 80.2
innings and posting a 2-6 record with a 4.02 earned run average.
It would be the second to last season he’d pitch in the big leagues, as
he’d go on to take the mound for both the White Sox and Seattle Mariners
in 1979, his last campaign as a big league pitcher.
Over the course of his six years in the Majors he’d post a 9-17 record,
with a 4.87 ERA over 116 games and 249.2 innings pitched.
