NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1970 FRANCISCO LIBRAN

Today’s “Not Really Missing” card is for an original 1969 San Diego Padre shortstop, Francisco Libran:


Libran’s entire Major League career encompassed 10 games for the Padres in their inaugural season, collecting one hit (a double) in 10 at-bats for a batting average of .100, along with an RBI.
He’d be back in the minors the following year, batting .250 in single-A ball before finding himself in the New York Mets system in 1971 where he batted .211, before playing out his pro career in 1972 with the Pueblo Pericos of the Mexican League.

  1. Nice. This reminds me.. would love to see a "coach" card for Sparky Anderson from his time as a Padres coach in 1969. Wonder if there are any viable photos available. His 1970 Topps card as Red manager seems to be an airbrushed Padres photo.
