Cards That Never Were #52

1972 TCMA - Randy Poffo

There has been much interest in Randy Poffo's minor league career. Card sets are sketchy from the seventies regarding the minors.

Randy spent the majority of his baseball career with the Cardinals organization. I was able to find a Cedar Rapids Cardinals minor league set from 1972, which I have based Randy's card off of.

Poffo spent three years in the Cardinal minor league organization, from 1971 to 1973. I chose the 1972 card partly because the cards are available, therefore a record of design exists, and partly because this year puts Randy smack dab in the middle of his Cardinals stint.

The original set only had a player name and a black and white bust shot of the player, so these elements were mimicked for this card.
