NOT QUITE MISSING IN ACTION- 1976 HENRY CRUZ

Here’s a card as part of the “1976 Project” for “Reader Jim” that is of of another player who was actually on one of the multi-player rookie cards in the 1976 set, Henry Cruz of the Los Angeles Dodgers:


Cruz actually saw a chunk of playing time during the 1975 season, appearing in 53 games and collecting 25 hits over 94 at-bats, good for a .266 average.
Jim needed him on a dedicated card so here you go.
Actually, as far as I’m concerned, Cruz has two other “missing” cards, in the 1977 and 1979 sets, which will be tackled in the near future.
What’s funny about that is the fact that he DOES get a card in the 1978 set, after seeing the LEAST playing time of his short 4-year career the year before!
Go figure...

  1. It's a great card Gio! With over 100 PAs and with Topps giving Mota, McMullen, and the great Leron Lee cards, Henry deserves it!
