NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1976 JACK LIND

Here’s a card that wasn’t really “missing” from the 1976 set, but since he never got a card in the first place for his brief two-year career, Jack Lind gets one now:


The former infielder appeared in the final 17 games of his Major League career in 1975, collecting one hit over 20 at-bats with a run scored.
This was after his first taste of the big leagues in 1974 when he was a late-season call-up for Milwaukee and appeared in nine games, batting .235 with four hits in 17 at-bats.
After spending the 1976 season in the Minor Leagues, he tried his hand in Japan where he played for the Yomiuri Giants in 1977, batting .237 with nine homers before calling it a career.

  1. The Brewers were pretty solid at shortstop back then.

  2. Right next to the Bill Travers card it fits right in the set.

  3. Wow, I don't even remember this guy - and I was a big Brewer fan back then. Yeah, probably had a hard time getting around a guy named Robin Yount at this time. ;)

  4. I wonder what he was looking at when the photographer snapped this shot?
