Here’s a “missing” 1971 card for a pitcher who appeared in 49 games during the 1970 season, split between the California Angels and San Diego Padres, Paul Doyle:
After starting the season in with the Angels and posting a 3-1 record
over 40 appearances with five saves, Doyle moved on to the Padres where
he would get into another nine games and collect an additional two
saves, finishing the year with a 3-3 record, seven saves and a 5.33
earned run average over those aforementioned 49 appearances.
Surely this warranted a card in the ’71 set don’t you think?
He would only appear in another two games in the bog leagues, as an
Angel again in 1972, before closing out his short three-year career,
finishing with a 5-3 record with a 3.79 ERA in 87 games and 90.1 innings
with 11 saves.
