MISSING IN ACTION- 1977 CHUCK TAYLOR

Here’s another player I’ve created a previous “missing” card for, Montreal Expos pitcher Chuck Taylor, who I earlier created a 1976 card for, and today a 1977 slab:


Taylor closed out a nice eight-year career in 1976, posting a 2-3 record with a 4.50 earned run average over 31 games and 40 innings pitched, all out of the bullpen.
He had a decent run as a reliever the last three years of his career after coming up with the St. Louis Cardinals in 1969 as a starter.
After spending three seasons in St. Louis, he split a year between the New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers in 1972 before moving North of the border, pitching the last four years for the Expos.
He would end up at 28-20 with an impressive 3.07 ERA over 607 innings and 305 appearances, all but 21 in relief.
