MISSING IN ACTION- 1978 STEVE HARGAN

Here’s a “missing” 1978 card which also serves as a “career capper” for long time pitcher Steve Hargan, who put together a decent 12-year career between 1965 and 1977:


Hargan played for no less than three teams during the 1977 season: Toronto Blue Jays, Texas Rangers and Atlanta Braves, appearing in 28 games and pitching 78.1 innings with a 2-6 record and a 6.55 earned run average.
The first eight years of his career were with the Cleveland Indians, where he put in some solid seasons, posting three sub-3.00 ERA campaigns while even leading the American League in shutouts with six in 1967, his only all-star nod.
Overall Hargan ended up with a 87 and 107 career record with a 3.92 ERA and 891 strikeouts accumulated over 354 appearances, 215 of which were starts, with 17 shutouts and 56 complete games.

  1. Gio, would luv to see a "missing" and "career capper" card of a popular player whose major league days also ended as an Atlanta Brave.....1974 Joe Pepitone.

  2. Nice job once again. Hargan looks so different than I remember him from his days with the Indians.
