A RE-DO FOR MISSING IN ACTION- 1976 BOB HEISE: "1976 PROJECT"

Thanks to a MUCH better photo released for Bob Heise as a member of the Boston Red Sox, here’s a do-over for the “1976 Project” missing card I created for him a while back:


For those forgetting what the original was like, here’s a refresher:

Definitely a step up!
In 1975 Heise appeared in 63 games for the Boston Red Sox, collecting 138 plate appearances with 126 at-bats.
He batted .214 with 27 hits, three doubles and 21 runs batted in, while scoring 12 runs.
So while he got a card in 1970 based on his four games and 13 plate appearances, he was left out of the set six years later with almost sixteen times more playing time!
Go figure…

  1. And what's worse is that he remained with the Red Sox for the 1976 season, which probably deserves another card.

  3. For some reason he saw no postseason action in 1975. Also, none in 1977 with the Royals.

  4. Yes, the redux seemed like a good idea for the "project". Great work as usual!
