Here’s a “not really missing” 1970 card for former Chicago Cubs catcher Randy Bobb, who REALLY wasn’t quite missing since he was on a multi-player rookie card in the 1970 set, but I liked the image I came across of him so I whipped up a card anyway:
Bobb had the last of his two brief Major League cups-of-coffee in 1969,
appearing in only three games and going 0-2 at the plate.
This was after coming up in 1968 for his first taste of MLB action,
getting into seven games and collecting his lone big league hit over
Those two trips to the “big time” would be it for him, as he’d go on to
play through the 1973 season in the Minor Leagues for a few different
organizations, before calling it a career.
I’m not going to begin creating “dedicated rookies” for just anyone,
like I just did for Bobb here. But I’m just a sucker for Chicago Cubs
cards in the 1970 set for some reason. I always thought they looked
really nice, hence this card creation. Love those uni's!
