Here’s a card that came out really nice as part of my on-going 1975 “In Action” sub-set, an action card for Philadelphia Phillies all-star Larry Bowa, check it out:

Bowa was smack in the middle of his prime as an all-star shortstop in the National League in the middle of the decade, racking up the hits and stolen bases on a Phillies team that made some waves but just couldn’t get passed the Championship Series thanks to the Cincinnati Reds and Los Angeles Dodgers.
Over his 16-year career, Bowa collected a couple of Gold Gloves and five all-star nods, while topping 2000 hits with 2191 along with 318 stolen bases.
Of course after his playing days were over he became a long-time coach and manager, currently serving as a bench coach for the Phillies, almost 50-years of Major League service since his rookie season of 1970.
