1991 Kellogg's Leyendas Card Backs - Part 6

Back for another 1991 Kellogg's Leyendas baseball card back.  I spent more time trying to decide when to go to the National this year, but I haven't figured that out yet.  I am likely only going for one day so that rules out Wednesday since it isn't enough time.  Sunday doesn't work this year either.

Back to Rico Carty.  He

I don't remember most of his career with the Braves.  During the 1970s he seemed like a guy who I could never keep track of his current team.  Here is what I found - 1963 - 72 Braves, 1973 - Cubs, Rangers, A's, 1974 - 77 Indians, 1978 - A's, Blue Jays, 1979 Blue Jays.  So, my memories were somewhat correct.  Back to the card back now.

He hit .300 in eight of his 15 seasons.  

Not on the card - his career average was .299.  He needed two more hits in all of those ABs to have a .300 career average.  He won a batting title in 1970 and started on the All-Star team.

Not on the card - he was an all-star starter without even being on the ballot.  Write-in votes got him the spot.

He missed the 1968 due to tuberculosis.  He also had seven shoulder separations. 

Not on the card - his only post-season appearances were in 1969 against the Mets.  He was 3-for-10 with three walks in three games.
