NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1973 DUANE JOSEPHSON

Time to close out former Major League catcher Duane Josephson’s eight-year career with a “not so missing” 1973 card:


Josephson, who spent the first six seasons of his career with the Chicago White Sox, played the last two years with the Boston Red Sox, including 26 games in 1972 when he played 1st base along with some catching duties thrown in.
He performed very well for the BoSox, batting .268 with 22 hits over 82 at-bats with 11 runs scored and seven runs batted in.
For his career, he hit .258 with 388 hits over 1505 at-bats, and was on the 1968 American League All-Star team in what would be the only full-time season of his MLB tenure.

  1. His 1972 season (and career) was cut short due to a heart ailment.
