NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1974 TOMMY MOORE

Here’s a “not so missing” 1974 card for former pitcher Tommy Moore of the New York Mets, who appeared in three games for the eventual National League champs:


Moore had his second MLB tour during the ‘73 season, posting a record of 0-1 with a 10.80 earned run average in those three games and 3.1 innings pitched.
In 1972, he had his first taste of the “big show”, also appearing in three games, not figuring in a decision with a much nicer 2.92 E.R.A.
After spending the 1974 season in the minors, he’d make it back in 1975, splitting the season with the St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers, appearing in 22 games, going 0-2 with a 6.13 E.R.A. over 39.2 innings, the most action he’d see in any of his 4 seasons as a big-leaguer.
After yet another season in the minor leagues in 1976, he would play the final 14 games of his career as a member of the inaugural Seattle Mariners team in 1977, winning two games against one loss with a 4.91 E.R.A., finishing his career with a 2-4 record over 42 games and 88.1 innings.

  1. Nice card...I also found your Mariners card for him, which looked great! Any hope for a 1976 card?
