MISSING IN ACTION- 1975 FERNANDO GONZALEZ

Today I post up a “missing” 1975 card for former New York Yankee (for a short time anyway) Fernando Gonzalez, who came over to the Bronx from the Kansas City Royals during the 1974 season:


Gonzalez Played in 60 games in 1974, the first nine with KC before finding himself in New York with the Yanks, hitting for a cumulative .204 average, with 29 hits in 142 at-bats.
After missing out on Major League play the next two seasons he’d make it back, now with the team he originally came up with, the Pittsburgh Pirates, before moving on to the San Diego padres where he would play until 1979, his last year in the Majors.
In his six seasons in the big show he would hit .235 with 244 hits in 1038 at-bats over 404 games, with 17 homers and 104 runs batted in along with 85 runs scored

  1. Very Rare looking card. He is memorable to me for being in the 1974 Topps Traded Series.
