MISSING IN ACTION- 1972 FRANK BAKER

Here’s a “missing” 1972 card for former Cleveland Indians outfielder Frank Baker, who played two seasons in the Majors, 1969 and 1971:


Baker appeared in 73 games for the Tribe during the 1971 season, batting .210 with 38 hits in 181 at-bats.
His only other year in the big leagues was 1969 when he played in 52 games as a rookie, hitting .256 with 44 hits in 172 at-bats.
All told his cumulative Major League numbers were a .232 average with 82 hits over 353 at-bats in 125 games, with 17 doubles, four triples and four homers while playing all three outfield positions.

  2. Although it was a late series card, how did he have a 1971 card without playing in the big leagues in 1970? Not to be confused with the "other" Frank Baker who, as a light-hitting shortstop, managed to slither his way onto a couple of cards in the '70s (1971 and 1974).
