NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1974 BRIAN OSTROSSER

Here’s another player with an ever so brief Major League career, former New York Met shortstop Brian Ostrosser, and a “Not So Missing” 1974 card:


Ostrosser’s entire Major League career spanned four games for the “Amazin’s” during their “You Gotta Believe” season that saw them reach the World Series, eventually losing to the dynasty of the time, the Oakland A’s.
He went 0-5 in his time at the plate, with two strikeouts, while playing flawless shortstop.
The following season he’d split time playing for the Mets and Cleveland Indians minor league system, where he would wrap up his pro career after 1975.

  1. He was traded for Dwain Anderson, who I will always remember as being one of the toughest cards for me to get in 1973.

  2. Gio... It seems like everyday you come up with something amazing... The 1972 Tony Conigliaro is still my favorite but nonetheless... Almost everyday on your site is like opening up a pack of cards back in the day... You never know what you're gonna get...
