NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1970 RANDY BOBB

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 eight at-bats.
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!

  3. Nice card! I also remember his Mets rookie card of '71, even though he never played for them at the big league level.
