Here’s a “career capping not so missing” 1976 card for former catcher/outfielder Dick Billings, who played what would be the final three games of his Major League career in 1975 with the St. Louis Cardinals:
Appearing all in pinch-hitting roles, Billings went 0-3 in three games
with St. Louis during the 1975 campaign, after appearing in one game for
them the previous season after being purchased from the only other team
he ever played for, the Washington Senators/Texas Rangers.
Between 1968 and 1974 Billings basically played the back-up catcher/spot
outfielder for the Washington/Texas organization, appearing in the bulk
of his MLB action during the 1971-1973 seasons.
Overall he retired with a .227 batting average, with 280 hits over 1231 at-bats in 400 games on the nose.
