MISSING IN ACTION- 1973 GARY PETERS

Today I’d like to go and give former Rookie of the Year Gary Peters a “missing” 1973 Topps card, which can also be a “Career Capper”:


Peters appeared in 33 games for the Boston Red Sox in 1972, posting a 3-3 record with a 4.32 earned run average over 85.1 innings of work.
That would close out a very respectable 14-year career that saw him lead the league in wins with 20 in 1964, while also leading the league in ERA in both 1963 (his rookie year) as well as 1966 with a sparkling 1.98 figure.
His rookie year was awesome, as he went 19-8 for the Pale Hose with that league-leading ERA, along with 189 strikeouts and four shutouts to take home the R.O.Y. honor.
His final numbers were 124-103 with a 3.25 ERA, along with 23 shutouts and 1420 K’s over 2081 innings and 359 games, 286 of which were starts.

  1. Nice job on the card. I have enjoyed looking at all the cards you have made. Would you every try to possibly complete a Topps set by producing every missing card? I don't really do many '80's or earlier customs, but I am trying to finish the 1992 Topps set. It would be cool if we could get a group of bloggers together and complete every Topps set ever made. Again, great job on the customs.
