NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1975 BROCK PEMBERTON

Here was a fun card to create, a 1975 “not so missing in action” Brock Pemberton of the New York Mets, who appeared in the first 11 games of his brief two-year career during the 1974 season:


Pemberton was a September call-up for the Met in 1974, and went on to collect four hits over 22 at-bats, good for a .182 batting average along with an RBI.
Sadly for him, that would be the bulk of his Big League action, as he would only appear in two games the following season, going 0-for-2 at the plate, thus concluding his career at the ripe old age of 21.
All told, his moment in the Big League sun came to a .167 batting average, with two hits over 24 at-bats, while playing four games out at First Base.

  1. Brock Pemberton is one of those guys who I'll always remember from his little inset "coming soon" photos in Mets yearbooks.

  2. That is a very 70s mustache. B^) Always nice to get a "lost" Mets card from that era.
