MISSING IN ACTION- 1974 BERNIE ALLEN

Next up is a “missing” 1974 card for former infielder Bernie Allen, who finished up a nice 12-year career with a split season between the New York Yankees and Montreal Expos:


Allen appeared in a combined 33 games in 1973, batting .206 with 22 hits in 107 at-bats while playing both second and short.
Known mainly for his five years as a Minnesota Twins player, with whom he came up in 1962, Allen also spent five years with the Washington Senators before a full season in the Bronx in 1972.
Overall he finished his career with a .239 batting average based on his 815 hits in 3404 at-bats, with 73 home runs and 352 runs batted in and 357 runs scored.

  2. Nice card! I know it is not a super popular set, but for some reason I just love 1974 Topps. I am sure it is a combination of colorful banners and unconscious love from 1977 when I only had a few "old" cards as an 8 year-old and most of them were super-beat-up 1974 cards.
