Here’s a “missing” 1970 card for one of the Seattle Pilots in their lone 1969 season, former catcher Merritt Ranew:
Ranew appeared in 54 games for the Pilots, his first taste of Major
League action since the 1965 season when he played for the California
In those games for Seattle he batted .247 with 20 hits over 81 at-bats
while filling in behind the plate as well as a few games in the outfield
and one at third base.
Those would be the final games of his five-year MLB career, finishing up
with a .247 average, collecting 147 hits in 594 at-bats with five teams
between 1962 and 1969.
