Today I am giving a little teaser as to my focus in 2017 for the blog: creating cards for as many players that appeared in a Major League game regardless of how much they played.
So today’s subject is the Minnesota Twins Bucky Guth, who got to taste
what it was like to be a Major League player with three scant games in
1972, playing one of those games in the field while collecting three
at-bats without a hit:
All told Guth went 0-3 with a run scored in his Major League career as a
late-season call-up, never to make it back to the “Bigs” again,
finishing his pro-career with one more year in the minors in 1973.
As I find more and more of these great photos of players who barely got
to see action during the 1970’s, it makes it a MUST that I try to create
as many cards documenting the decade as I can.
Heck, if the supplies are there, why not?!
So for next year, besides the other special cards and sub-sets I try to
come up with, a BIG focus will be the “Not Really Missing in Action”
sub-set, as I have already collected almost a couple of hundred images
Hope you all like the topic as much as I will!
