Today we have a “not so missing” 1979 card for former pitcher Gerry Hannahs, who put together a brief 4-year Major League career, yet never got a card, not even a spot on a multi-year rookie card:
Hannah appeared in only one game during the 1978 season, throwing two
innings for the Los Angeles Dodgers, giving up three hits and a couple
of runs while not factoring in a decision.
1979 wouldn’t fare much better for the lefty from Binghamton, NY, as
he’d appear in what would be the final four games of his career, posting
a record of 0-2 with a 3.38 earned run average over 16 innings pitched.
Originally up with the Montreal Expos, he appeared in eleven games in
1976 and 1977 combined, going 3-5, including the very first win for an
Expos pitcher at Olympic Stadium, which occurred on April 16th of 1977.
For his career, he appeared in 16 games, with 12 of them as starts,
going 3-7 with a 5.07 earned run average over 71 innings pitched, with
42 strikeouts and 41 walks.
He’d stick around the Minor Leagues through the 1981 season, ending up
in the Minnesota Twins organization, before retiring for good.
