MISSING IN ACTION- 1970 LOU JOHNSON

Here’s a combo “missing” and “career capping” 1970 card for the original “Sweet Lou”, former outfielder Lou Johnson:


Johnson finished up a nice eight-year career in 1969 with the California Angels, batting .203 in ‘69 with 27 hits in 133 at-bats over 67 games.
Between 1965 and 1967 he saw his greatest success on a Major League field, playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers and being part of their champion 1965 team as well as their pennant winning 1966 squad.
He would finish up with a .258 batting average with 529 hits over 2049 at-bats spanning 677 games between 1960 and 1969.

  1. Hmm.. I think this is the first time I've seen his partially missing ear on a card.
