Here’s yet another “not really missing” 1970 Chicago Cubs card (I’m just a sucker for them), this one of two-game Major League pitcher Alec Distaso:
Distaso’s Major League career encompassed just three days, April 20,
1969-April 22, 1969, when he appeared in two games, not factoring in a
decision and ending up with a 3.86 earned run average over 4.2 innings
He’d spend the following season in Chicago’s minor league system,
sporting a 4-8 record with an 8.36 earned run average over 17
appearances before leaving the game for good at the age of 21.
As I have stated before, I just love the Chicago Cubs cards in the 1970
set. Something so classic about the uniforms, and I always felt the
colors went well with the 1970 card design.
