MISSING IN ACTION- 1975 CHRIS ARNOLD

Here’s a “missing” 1975 card for a guy who actually had almost 200 plate appearances in 1974, and played another two years in the Majors, Chris Arnold of the San Francisco Giants:


Arnold played in 78 games for the Giants in 1974, batting .241 with 42 hits in 174 official at-bats with 22 runs scored and 26 runs batted in while playing all the infield slots but First Base.
He would play all six of his big league seasons with San Francisco, coming up in 1971 and playing through the 1976 campaign.
As a matter of fact he actually got a card in the 1977 set after already playing his final game the year before.
All told Arnold hit .237 over his career, with 103 hits in 435 at-bats with 47 runs scored and 51 RBI’s while playing the aforementioned infield positions and nine games behind the plate in 1973.
