NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1973 GLENN REDMON

Here was a fun card to create, a 1975 “not so missing” edition for seven-game Major Leaguer Glenn Redmon of the San Francisco Giants:


Redmon’s Big League career spanned a late-season September call-up in 1974, hitting .235 over those seven games, with three doubles among his four career safeties with four runs batted in in 17 at-bats. Not bad!
A decent hitting infielder with no power over his eight years as a professional in the Minor Leagues, he played for the White Sox, Giants and Indians organizations before retiring after the 1976 season, never getting that chance to suit up in a Big League game again aside from that wonderful month in late-1974.

  1. A GIANT post, Gio! I have the 1975 Circle K Phoenix Giants card of Mr Redmon. Of the 34 players who appeared that year for Phoenix, only 5 never reached the majors. Best I can tell Mr Redmon was one of 8 who never had his own TOPPS card. You rewarded Damaso Blanco, Leon Brown, Bruce Christensen, Skip James, Tommy Toms, and Mr Redmon with one leaving only Mike Eden and Ed Sukla (who played in the '60's) without a solo ML card.

  2. Speaking of Phoenix, it was obvious that this photo was taken at Spring Training but it looks like Redmon is all alone in the desert.

  3. Somewhere I have a Glenn Redmon card when he was in the Indians' system for Oklahoma City.
