MISSING IN ACTION- 1976 DIEGO SEGUI

Time to add a 1976 “missing” Diego Segui to the 1978 version I created a while back to close out the former pitcher’s career:


Segui appeared in 33 games for Boston in their American League championship season, posting a 2-5 record with a 4.82 earned run average over 71 innings of work.
He would miss the 1976 season before joining the Seattle Mariners team for their inaugural 1977 year, a forgettable one for Segui as he went 0-7 with a bloated 5.69 ERA in his swan-song.
For his 15-year career he would go 92-111 with a 3.81 ERA over 639 games, 171 of them starts, leading the A.L. in ERA in 1970 with a 2.56 mark when he split the year between starting and relieving for the Oakland A’s.

  1. Segui was also missing from the 1967 set.

  2. Looks great! Segui also deserves a '76 card because he pitched in Game 5 of the '75 World Series.

    1. Technically this is his "Missing '76 Topps template card. If anything, since the 1976 template represented the 1975 MLB season, we really need Diego in the red colored hats that they wore in the W.S. showdown versus the Reds.... :)

      Still a great card Gio!
