MISSING IN ACTION- "IN ACTION" #59: 1972 RALPH GARR

Did someone request a Ralph Garr “missing” 1972 In-Action card?
Well here it is, the next entry in my long-running thread. Check it out:


Garr was just off his first all-star caliber season of 1971 where he collected 219 hits along with an excellent .343 batting average. Keep in mind this was his first full-time year!
Over the next four years he’d be one of the top hitters in the league, even topping the N.L. with a .353 average in 1974, his career high.
By the time he retired after the 1980 season, he finished with a .306 batting average, leading the league in hits once, triples twice and average once as mentioned earlier, while playing for the Atlanta Braves, Chicago White Sox and California Angels over the course of 13 years.
