MISSING IN ACTION-"IN ACTION" #52: 1972 JIM FREGOSI

Let’s go and give former all-star shortstop Jim Fregosi a “missing” In-Action card in the 1972 Topps set:


It’s easy to forget that Fregosi was the top American League shortstop in the 1960’s.
However by the time the 1970’s rolled around the six-time all-star was about to see a dramatic downturn in his career, beginning with THE trade that will always be remembered: Fregosi for a guy named Nolan Ryan.
Nevertheless he put together a very nice 18-year career, finishing up after the 1978 season with the Pittsburgh Pirates, collecting over 1700 hits, 150 homers and a .265 batting average with a Gold Glove and the aforementioned all-star nods.

  1. Not bad. It's also unusual to see a shot of a player from behind in the '72 Topps set. Am I wrong?
