Here’s a “missing” 1971 card, which can also serve as a “career capper” for former slugger Jimmie Hall, who finished up an eight-year career in 1970:
Split between the Chicago Cubs and Atlanta Braves, Hall hit .165 with
two homers and five runs batted in over 79 at-bats in 67 games.
His final three seasons between 1968 and 1970 were all split seasons
among multiple teams, a far cry from when he came up with the Minnesota
Twins in 1963 and slugged his way to a third-place finish in the A.L.
Rookie of the Year voting when he slammed 33 homers with 80 RBI’s and 88
Though he went on to hit 20+ homers the following three seasons, the
overall numbers declined before he found himself in California playing
for the Angels in 1967, hitting 16 homers, the most he’d hit in any
season the rest of his career.
He would end up hitting 121 homers during his career, along with a .254
average and 391 RBI’s with 387 runs scored in 963 games and 2848 at-bats
between 1963 and 1970.
