NOT REALLY MISSING IN ACTION- 1973 CLINT COMPTON

Here is a classic to add to the “Not Really Missing” collection, a 1973 card for one-game Major Leaguer Clint Compton of the Chicago Cubs:


Compton made is sole Big League appearance on October 3rd of 1972, throwing two innings and giving up two earned runs on two hits and two walks.
Unfortunately for him, that was it as far as his Major League career, as he would spend the next season in the Minor Leagues, going 4-6 for Wichita in the Cubs’ system.
Turns out that 1973 season in the Minors would be his last as a Pro, closing out a six-year professional career that began in the Atlanta Braves’ system in 1968 as a 17-year old.
One MLB game, two innings, and this card created for the blog. Love stuff like this!
