Von Joshua

1974 Topps

Joshua spent 10 years roaming major league outfields, posting a .273 career average with 30 home runs in 822 games. He came up with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1969 but did not become a regular until he joined the San Francisco Giants in 1975. He played in 129 games that season and hit .318 with seven home runs, 10 triples and 20 stolen bases. He split time between the Giants and the Milwaukee Brewers the next year, playing in 149 games, which was a career high. He played in 144 games the following season for Milwaukee before rejoining the Dodgers in 1979. Joshua spent that year with L.A. and the next season with the San Diego Padres, which would be his last in the big leagues.


Joshua had four at bats in the 1974 World Series against the Oakland A’s. He did not record a hit. Following his playing career, he was a minor league hitting coach.
