Swings and misses

1968 Topps

Two more cards returned sans survey. Ken Holtzman pitched two no-hitters for the Chicago Cubs in the 1970’s. A two-time all star, he won the World Series three times with the Oakland A’s, in 1972, 1973 and 1974. Holtzman won 174 games in the his big league career. He was 21-13 for the 1973 A’s, which was arguably his best year.

1989 Topps

John Morris played for seven seasons from 1986-1992 for the St. Louis Cardinals, Philadelphia Phillies and California Angels. He was a career .236 hitter with eight lifetime home runs. He played in 101 games for the 1987 Cardinals, which was the most in a season during his career. He hit .261 with 23 RBI that year.

Morris continues the disturbing trend of younger players not answering the questions. Hopefully they will all see that Jose Canseco did it and then follow suit!

    1. No problem. Do you have an email or something where I can send them? I don’t want to just stick them in this message thread for everyone to see and it does not appear it is possible to send a private message on WordPress. I was also unable to find a way to send you a private message on your blog. So, give me a good way to get them to you privately and I will get them to you ASAP.
