Though he would go on to have his finest season in a Major League uniform in 1974 as a member of the Atlanta Braves, I am posting a “missing” card for Buzz Capra for that year as a New York Met, for whom he suited up the previous season:
Capra was purchased by the Braves from the Mets in March of 1974, so I
don’t think Topps would have had him on his upcoming team in time for
Capra appeared in 24 games for the “Ya Gotta Believe” Mets of 1973, all
out of the bullpen, as he posted a 2-7 record with a 3.86 earned run
But once in Atlanta in 1974 he was in a groove, as he went on to lead
the National League in ERA with a sparkling 2.28 along with a 16-8
record over 39 games, 27 of which were starts.
