NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1975 LANCE CLEMONS

Here’s a “not so missing” 1975 card for former Boston Red Sox pitcher Lance Clemons, who had a taste of the Majors over three brief seasons:


Clemons, who originally came up in 1971 with the Kansas City Royals, appeared in six games for Boston during the 1974 season, compiling a 1-0 record with a 9.95 earned run average over 6.1 innings of work, all out of the ‘pen.
It was his first action back since 1972 while with the St. Louis Cardinals, when he went 0-1 over three games and 5.1 innings pitched.
However, that 1974 activity with the Red Sox would be the last action he’d see on the big league level, finishing up with a 2-1 record along with a 6.06 earned run average in 19 appearances and 35.2 innings.

  2. Deogolf... Exactly... Most of his creations are like this, My favorite was his 1972 Tony Conigliaro.... However, I wake up see other Gio creations and it seems every other morning I have another favorite. Jim Hutto last week for example...

  3. Unfortunately, Lance died of cancer in 2008. He was only 60.
