Here’s a “missing" 1973 card for former catcher and first baseman George Mitterwald, who played 11-years in the Major League, split between the Minnesota Twins and Chicago Cubs:
Mitterwald appeared in 64 games for the Twins in 1972, collecting 30
hits over 163 at-bats, good for a .184 batting average while filling in
on catching duties.
1973 would be perhaps his best as a big league player, as he would play
full-time and hit 16 homers with 64 runs batted in over 125 games, with
50 runs scored and a .259 batting average.
Funny enough however, that would be his last season as he would play the
final four years of his career with the Chicago Cubs, playing through
the 1977 season filling in behind the plate and at first base.
He’d finish with a .236 batting average over his career, with 623 hits
in 2645 at-bats over 887 games, with 251 runs scored and 301 RBI’s.
