Here’s a “not really missing” card for former pitcher Charlie Hudson, for whom I earlier created a “missing” 1974 card:
Hudson appeared in 12 games for the St. Louis Cardinals during the 1972 season, the first taste of Major League ball he’d have.
He picked up a win against no losses, with a 5.11 earned run average over 12.1 innings of work, all out of the bullpen.
After a 1973 season that saw him as a Texas Ranger, going 4-2 with a
4.62 E.R.A. in 25 games, four of which were starts, he’d be out of the
big leagues until 1975 when he made it back with the California Angels,
appearing in the last three games of his short three-year career, going
0-1 with a bloated 9.53 E.R.A. to finish up at 5-3, with a 5.04 career
E.R.A. in 40 appearances and 80.1 innings pitched.
