MISSING IN ACTION- 1973 TOM SHOPAY

Here’s a “missing” 1973 card for a guy who can be the poster child for 1970’s missing cards: former Baltimore Oriole Ton Shopay:


As it is, I think I’ve already created a couple of cards for him, and today’s card is based on his 49 games played in 1972, when he batted .225 with nine hits over 40 at-bats for the ‘Birds.
Shopay originally came up with the New York Yankees in 1967 and played parts of seven years in the Major Leagues.
He would be out of the game for good after the 1977 season, ending up with a .201 batting average with 62 lifetime hits in 309 at-bats covering 253 games, all but 36 of them for Baltimore.

  1. Great card! Earl Weaver is as much to blame as anybody for all those missing cards, he never played the guy.
