NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1979 ED PUTMAN

Here’s a “not so missing” 1979 for former Chicago Cubs player Ed Putman, who could play the infield while also spotting you behind the plate:


Putman, who you may remember from the 1980 Topps set while a member of the Detroit Tigers, appeared in 17 games for the Cubs during the 1978 season.
He hit .200 with five hits over 25 at-bats, driving in three while scoring two himself, while playing third, first and catcher out in the field.
Originally up for five games in 1976 with Chicago, he’d go on to play in 21 games with the Tigers in 1979, which turned out to be the last action he saw on a Major League field.
He finished his brief three-year Big League career with a .239 average, collecting 17 hits over 71 at-bats in 43 games, suiting up for the Cubs and Tigers between 1976 and 1979.

  1. Nice card...again, very little action for such a high draft choice.
