MISSING IN ACTION- 1970 BILLY COWAN

Here’s a “missing” 1970 card for former outfielder Billy Cowan, who split the 1969 season with the New York Yankees and California Angels:


Cowan appeared in 60 games, batting .240 with 25 hits in 104 at-bats while [laying all three outfield slots as well as first base.
He would go on to play another three more seasons in his Major League career, all with the Angels, retiring with a .236 career average, with 281 hits in 1190 at-bats, along with 40 homers and 125 runs batted in.
On a side-note: he put up some monster seasons in the Minors his 1st three pro years between 1961 and 1963, slamming as many as 35 homers and driving in as much as 122 runs while dividing his time in various levels of the Chicago Cubs system.
