Let’s go and give Lee May, aka “Big Bopper” a “Nickname” card in my ongoing series shall we:
I gave him a 1973 template card since he was smack in the middle of a
great run between 1968 and 1978 of 20+ homer/80+ RBI seasons between the
Cincinnati Reds and Houston Astros.
Though he missed out on the “Big Red Machine” Reds teams of the mid-70’s
with he being traded for Joe Morgan before the 1972 season, May went on
to have a great Major League career, slamming over 350 homers along
with over 2000 hits and 1200 RBI’s in his 18-year career between 1965
Definitely a great addition to the “Nickname” lineup!
