MISSING IN ACTION 1974 LARRY HOWARD

Here’s a “missing” 1974 card for a player I already created a 1973 card for, former catcher Larry Howard:


I created the 1973 card a while back, showing him as a Houston Astros player, and today we have him as an Atlanta Brave, as he split the 1973 season with both teams.
Turns out that 1973 season would be his last in the big leagues, appearing in 24 games, with only four in Atlanta, on his way to a .161 batting average with nine hits in 56 at-bats.
That would close out a short four year career that had him play 133 games, hitting .236 with 86 lifetime hits in 365 official at-bats.

  1. I'm impressed, how were able to get a legit picture of him after just 4 games with Atlanta?? He was definitely neglected by Topps in his career.
