MISSING IN ACTION- 1976 TOMMY MOORE

Here’s a “missing” 1976 card for a pitcher who had 22 appearances during the 1975 season, Tommy Moore, who split time with the St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers:


Moore, who didn’t see any Major League action in 1974 after playing the previous two years with the New York Mets, was back up in 1975, now as a Cardinal, and saw 10 games out of the bullpen though not factoring in a decision.
He posted a 3.86 earned run average with six strikeouts over 18.2 innings of work before being traded to the Rangers along with Ed Brinkman for Willie Davis, former Los Angeles star outfielder.
The change of scenery did not do him any favors, as he proceeded to post an 0-2 record over twelve games and 21 innings along with an unsightly 8.14 E.R.A.
He’d miss the 1976 season, putting up a decent year in the Minors, before making it back to the Majors in 1977 with the last 14 games of his career, this time as a Seattle Mariners player.
All told for his Major League career, Moore posted a 2-4 record with a 5.40 E.R.A. and 40 strikeouts over 42 appearances, all but three of them as a reliever.

  1. Great card, perfectly in line with the other Rangers cards from '76. I'm thinking it looks like Stan Thomas from that year.
