On the blog today, a “not so missing” 1974 card for former Detroit Tigers pitcher Bill Slayback, who barely appeared in the Big Leagues during the 1973 season after a decent rookie showing in 1972:

He barely saw any Major League action in 1973 when he pitched in three games and only 2 innings, not factoring in a decision while posting an earned run average of 4.50, allowing five hits and an earned run in that time.
In  his debut year of 1972, he played the bulk of his total Big League playing time when suited up for 23 games, going 5-6 over 81.2 innings, starting 13 games and even throwing a shutout, with a nice 3.20 ERA.
But after a 1974 season that saw him appear in 16 games, four of those starts, posting a 1-3 record with a 4.77 earned run average in 54.2 innings of work, his time on a Major league mound was done, as he would toil in the Minors in both 1975 and 1976, retiring soon after.
All told he posted a 6-9 record in his Major League career, finishing with a 3.84 ERA in 42 games, 17 of which were starts, along with a shutout and three complete games over 138.1 innings pitched. Between 1972 and 1974.
