Missing in action: “Veteran” players without baseball card representation

June 27, 2013 · 0 comments

Speaking about the topic some more, the Sabermetric Research blog posted these pieces about pitchers and hitters who, for whatever reason, missed out on having a baseball card printed. Now I’m not marketing expert, but I would have to imagine there would be some interest by hard-core collectors to have such players represented. As a kid growing up in the 60s and 70s, I know I wondered why there was no “official” (i.e., Topps) card for Tony Horton, who played in over 600 games over seven seasons.
