In the 1965 yearbook they referred to this guy as a future star. What Happened????

My first "encounter" with Dennis Musgraves was his rookie baseball card. It was either 1966 or 1967. There was something about that card that made me a big fan of his. I read somewhere that he had an injury that cut his career short. In the '80's, I wrote to him for an autograph. He was quite gracious in his response. I truly cherish having his signature!

For those curious, I did a "Where are they now?" on Musgraves for the October '04 edition of NY Mets Inside Pitch. He remembered his lone start- against the Cubs. He hurt his arm that day, needed 2 elbow surgeries and never got back to the bigs. He worked in the insurance biz for 24 yrs once he got out of baseball and is now retired, living in Missouri.

Too bad injuries terminated his career, because in '65 he had 11 K's in 16 innings and an ERA of 0.56. Wow!

Sorry, Stan, but Dennis Musgraves didn't have a baseball card in 1966 or 1967, when Topps was pretty much it for baseball cards. His only baseball cards that I'm aware of are the late '70s/early '80s TCMA cards and the 1991 Wiz Mets cards.

Here's a correction to my posting regarding Musgraves' baseball cards: he also appeared in the Larry Fritsch One-Year Wonder cards.

You might be interested in knowing that Dennis had one more card, of course not a Topps but the Wiz stores (remember them?) had a series of both Yankee and Met cards and Musgraves had a Met Wiz card. I collect autographs for this set and basically every Met who had played for them can be found up until I think maybe 91 or 92 when they were published and given away at Shea. The Yankess also have the same basic design but they are divided by decades.

Mr. Musgraves has always been a great signer and will always sign his one year card and Wiz. You can find them on eBay; look under Wiz and you will see many there for purchase.
