MISSING IN ACTION- 1975 RICHIE SCHEINBLUM

Here’s a “missing” 1975 card for former outfielder Richie Sceinblum, who wrapped up an eight-year Major League career with half a dozen games in St. Louis in 1974:


In those six games, Scheinblum went 2-6 after playing his first 10 games of the year with the California Angels, followed by 36 games with the Kansas City Royals.
Combined, he played in 52 games in 1974, batting .183 with 21 hits over 115 at-bats for the three organizations, finishing his career with a .263 batting average based on 320 hits in 1218 at-bats over 462 games between 1965 and 1974.

    1. Yes. He played in 5 games for the Cardinals in '74, which makes this photo accurate for a '75 Topps card.

  2. Richie did manage to a spot on the TSN AL All-Star team in 1972 in his lone full season as a starter.
