MISSING IN ACTION- 1978 BOB HEISE

Here’s a card for a player who had a FEW “missing” cards in the decade, former infielder Bob Heise, this time a 1978 edition:


I’ve already made a 1976 “missing” card for him as part of the “1976 Project”, and I have another one lined up for 1977, but this 1978 card is also a career-capper, as he closed out a nice 11-year career with a season in Kansas City, being a part of the 1977 American League West champ Royals.
Heise appeared in 54 games with KC, batting .258 with 16 hits over 62 at-bats with defensive work at all infield positions.
This was pretty much his role his entire career in the Major Leagues, playing for no less than seven organizations between 1967 and 1977.
He would end up with a .247 batting average for his career, with 283 hits over 1144 at-bats and 499 games

  1. Not that bad of a batting average considering his role as a defensive substitution role player.

  2. Had to be a little disappointed that he saw no action in the ALCS after spending the entire season with the club.
