Up on the blog today we have a career-capping "not so missing" 1975 card for former infielder Bobby Floyd, who played the last of his Big League games during the 1974 season:
Floyd appeared in 10 games for Kansas City in 1974, going 1-for-9 at the plate while playing second, short and third.
Originally up as a Baltimore Oriole in 1968, he'd play for the O's two years before finding himself in Kansas City in 1970, where he'd play the final five years of his career.
I also created a "missing" 1973 card for him back in 2015, wondering why Topps left him out of that set after he saw the most action he'd see in any of his MLB seasons, 61 games.
Yet Topps gave him cards in 1970, 1971, 1972 and 1974, after much LESS action the previous seasons. Go figure!
He was out of the Major Leagues after the 1974 season, and his final numbers were: a .219 batting average with 93 hits, 18 doubles and a triple over 425 at-bats in 214 games.
