MISSING IN ACTION- 1972 TOM MATCHICK

Allow me to post a “missing” 1972 card for former infielder Tom Matchick of the Milwaukee Brewers, who was at the tail-end of a 6-year Major League career:


Matchick appeared in 42 games for Milwaukee during the 1971 season, hitting .219 with 25 hits in 114 at-bats.
The following season would see him appear in only three games for the Baltimore Orioles, collecting two hits in nine at-bats while covering third base.
A light-hitting fielder, he was a part of the World Champion Detroit Tigers during their improbable run in 1968, which happened to be his rookie year.
Overall for his career, Matchick hit .215 with 178 hits in 826 at-bats, appearing in 292 games playing all four infield positions.
