MISSING IN ACTION- 1974 MIKE STRAHLER

Here’s a “missing” 1974 card for pitcher Mike Strahler, who finished up a short four-year career with the Detroit Tigers in 1973 after three years as a Los Angeles Dodger:



Strahler appeared in 22 games for Detroit, 11 of them starts, on his way to a 4-5 record with a 4.37 earned run average over 80.1 innings pitched.
It would be almost double the playing time he saw in any of his other three seasons with L.A., pretty much equaling his inning-total thus far as a pro.
All told he wound up with a 6-8 career record, along with a 3.57 E.R.A. over 53 appearances, 13 of them starts, and 158.2 innings.

  2. Great card, it definitely makes up for that awful "eyes to the sky" card from 1973.

    1. Of course I meant Strahler's card that TOPPS gave him in 1973 (as an Angel)

  4. Sorry for posting here, but I couldn't find a way to send you an email. Wanted to let you know that there is a seller on ebay who is stealing images of some of your cards and selling them as his own customs. Here's a link to his auction for your 1976 Jim Wynn card: http://www.ebay.com/itm/JIM-WYNN-1976-AS-STYLE-VERY-COOL-CUSTOM-MADE-ART-CARD-/182439335871?hash=item2a7a3b57bf:g:Ng8AAOSwEzxYda0h
    Guy has stolen images from numerous custom card creators...pathetic

    1. Hey Alex! Thanks for the heads up! I know who this ass-wipe is, have dealt with him before. Now I'll deal with him again. Absolutely pathetic. Take care buddy! Appreciate it...
