Here’s a “not so missing” 1974 card for former infielder Larry Brown, who appeared in a handful of games with the Baltimore Orioles during the 1973 season but was left out of the 1974 Topps set:
Brown only got into 17 games the previous year, hitting .250 for the
Birds with seven hits over 28 at-bats with five runs batted in and four
By the time the 1974 season opened he’d be a member of the Texas
Rangers, where he’d play 54 games, the last of his 12-year Major League
career, hitting .197 with 15 hits in 76 at-bats.
Over his 12 Big League seasons, the first eight-plus with the Cleveland
Indians, Brown hit .233 with 803 hits in 3449 at-bats in 1129 games,
playing second, short and third throughout his tenure.
