Here’s a “missing” 1972 card for former outfielder Buddy Bradford, who finished the 1971 season as a member of the Cincinnati Reds after starting out with the Cleveland Indians that year:
Bradford actually played in 99 combined games in ‘71, batting .188 with
26 hits in 138 official at-bats, a decent amount of playing time to be
omitted from the 1972 set.
He would go on to play through the 1976 season, finishing up with the
Chicago White Sox and completing an eleven-year career that began with
the very same organization in 1966.
His final career numbers were a .229 average with 363 hits over 1605
at-bats in 697 games, with 52 home runs and 175 runs batted in with 224
runs scored, playing for the White Sox, Cleveland Indians, St. Louis
Cardinals and Reds.
