Here’s a “missing” 1970 card for former pitcher Wade Blasingame, who appeared in 26 games for the Houston Astros in 1969:
In those 26 appearances, Blasingame posted a 0-5 record with a bloated 5.37 earned run average over 52 innings pitched.
He would finish up his ten-year career in 1972 split between Houston and
the New York Yankees, ending up with a 46-51 record, with a 4.52 ERA
and 512 strikeouts over 222 games, 128 of them starts, and 863.2 innings
His best season as a Major League pitcher was easily his 1965 campaign
when he went 16-10 for the Milwaukee Braves in their final year before
moving to Atlanta.
But he could never match those numbers, becoming an arm out of the bullpen except for the 1971 season the rest of his career.
