Here’s a “missing” 1977 card for former catcher Elrod “Ellie” Hendricks, who was at the tail-end of his 12-year career which included three separate stints with the Baltimore Orioles:
Hendricks split the 1976 season appearing in 54 games with the Orioles
and the New York Yankees, and hit a combined .174 with 23 hits in 132
at-bats while filling in behind the plate.
He would go on to play in just under a couple dozen games between the
Yanks and again the Orioles over the next three seasons, finishing up
with a sole appearance in 1979 with the eventual American League champ
For his 12-year career spanning 1968 to 1979 he played in 711 games,
with 415 hits in 1888 at-bats, giving him a .220 lifetime average with
205 runs and 230 runs batted in.
