Up on the blog today we have a “not so missing” 1972 card for former first/third baseman Ed Goodson, who just came off his second partial season in the Big Leagues with the San Francisco Giants:
Goodson appeared in 20 games during the 1971 season, hitting .190 with
eight hits over 42 at-bats, with four runs scored and a run batted in.
Basically a player off the bench his entire career, he had a very nice
1973 season for San Fran when he batted .302 with 12 homers and 53 runs
batted in over 102 games, easily his best season in the Major League.
Overall for his eight-year MLB career, Goodson finished with a .260
batting average, with 329 hits over 1266 at-bats, with 108 runs scored
and 170 runs batted in, with 30 homers in 515 games between 1970 and
