MISSING IN ACTION- 1978 TOMMY MOORE

Here’s a card for an “original” Seattle Mariner from their inaugural 1977 season, pitcher Tommy Moore who was missing from the 1978 set:



Since it WAS the organization’s first season as a Major League club it’s nice to see the faces of those players who started it all, no?
Moore appeared in 14 games for Seattle in 1977, posting a 2-1 record with a 4.91 earned run average over 33 innings.
It turns out those two wins would be the only wins of Moore’s four-year career that began with the New York Mets in 1972.
Between ‘72 and 1975 he suited up for the Mets, St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers, with missed seasons in 1974 and 1976 before that final bow in 1977.
All told he ended up with a 2-4 record in 42 lifetime appearances, with a 5.40 ERA and 40 strikeouts in 88.1 innings pitched.

  1. I think you forgot to change the player name, there. (Guess we've got a variation, but that's more of an 80s Fleer thing...B^)

  2. It's unreal that this guy never had a Topps card. Kind of like Doug Howard. He had an Opee Chee card but never an official Topps card.
