MISSING IN ACTION- 1975 IVAN MURRELL

Here’s a “missing” 1975 card for former outfielder Ivan Murrell of the Atlanta Braves:


Murrell appeared in 73 games for Atlanta during the 1974 season, even getting some time at first-base in addition to his usual outfield slot.
He’d bat .248 with 33 hits over 133 at-bats while driving in 12 and scoring 11 runs himself.
His career would consist of 10 seasons between 1963 and 1974, with missed years in 1965 and 1966 after coming up with the Houston Colt. 45’s as a 20-year old.
All told he would finish with a .236 batting average based on 308 hits over 1306 at-bats in 564 games, playing for Houston, the San Diego Padres (1969-1973) and that final year in Atlanta.

  1. Nice card. Career capper for a regular guy too.

  2. Great photo. Love the plaid pants on the guy in the background - so 1974!
