MISSING IN ACTION- 1970 ED CHARLES

Let’s go and give fan-favorite Ed Charles a “missing” 1970 card shall we?


Charles wrapped up his 8-year Major League career in 1969 in fine fashion, being a part of the surprising New York Mets and their World Series winning squad.
Charles appeared 61 games for the “Amazin’s”, hitting .207 with 35 hits over 169 at-bats.
After playing the first 5+ seasons of his career for the Kansas City Athletics, Charles was traded to Queens in May of 1967, where he would play until he left the game in 1969.
He would bat .263 over that time, collecting 917 hits over 3482 at-bats and 1005 games, all while playing third base.

  1. You neglected to mention that Ed Charles appears on card #310 -- The Sporting News: World Series Celebration METS WHOOP IT UP! -- in the 1970 Topps set. He's holding up "The Amazing Mets" LP.
