MISSING IN ACTION- 1973 WINSTON LLENAS

Here’s a “missing” 1973 card for a guy I already produced a “missing” 1976 card a while back, former infielder Winston Llenas of the California Angels:


Llenas, who spent all six of his MLB seasons in an Angels uniform, played in 44 games during the 1972 season, batting .266 with 17 hits over 64 at-bats.
Never more than a spot player, Llenas played every spot on the field but Shortstop, center & catcher over the years, finishing up with a .230 career average, with 122 hits over 531 at-bats in 300 big league games, with 50 runs scored and 61 runs batted in, with only 20 extra base hits in that time.
That is such a “70’s season” right there for an infielder of the time isn’t it?

  1. He looks like Jim Fregosi. Like the pose and the background. Yes. Definitely has that 70's look.

    1. I remember checking out his stats one time. He had decent power in the minors

  2. Great card! Nice to see him in a card where he is not bunting (see his '74 and '75 cards).
