MISSING IN ACTION- 1977 JOE LAHOUD

Today we have a “missing” 1977 card for former outfielder Joe Lahoud, who split the 1976 season between the California Angels and Texas Rangers:


Lahoud appeared in 80 games during the 1976 campaign, batting a combined .200 with 37 hits over 185 at-bats, definitely enough playing time to warrant a card in the 1977 set.
He would move on to the Kansas City Royals for his final two seasons of Big League ball in 1977/78, appearing in only 47 games for the American League West champs, finishing his 11-year career with a .223 average, with 429 hits over 1925 at-bats.
He’d also hit 65 homers while driving in 218 runs, scoring 239 himself over 791 appearances between 1968 and 1978.
