1972 Kellogg's Baseball Card Backs - #22 - 24

Back for three more cards from the 1972 Kellogg's baseball card set.  I won't get pictures in here until the weekend.

#24 - Glenn Beckert

The back of the card starts with the fact that he's "short on power".  19 homers in seven seasons, so I guess they are correct.  He's an all-star who rarely strikes out.

Not on the card - he struck out 243 times in 5,208 career at-bats.  That's one in every 21.4 at-bats, almost the same ratio that Tony Gwynn had in this career.   Reggie Jackson struck out every 3.8 at-bats.

He ended his career with 22 HRs, or one in almost every 237 at-bats. 

He never hit over .300 in his career until hitting .342 in 1971. 

#23 - Rick Wise

Wise had 17 complete games in 1971 along with zero errors and six homers.  In his career he pitched in 506 games and he committed only 13 errors.  He had 15 career homers, a total that might have been greater had he not spent six years in the AL immediately after the DH began being used.

#22 - Jim Hunter

Hunter threw five no-hitters, including a perfect game, in high school.  He added a perfect game in 1968 for the A's.  He missed an entire season due to surgery to remove shotgun pellets from his foot.
