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

June 27, 2013

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.
