1981 Donruss, Mickey Klutts

#110 Mickey Klutts

Next up is Mickey Klutts. Mickey played in the Majors for parts of eight seasons, but he only got into 199 games during that time. He played with the Yankees, A's, and Blue Jays during his career and he got the most playing time with Oakland in 1980. That season, he got into 75 games and he had 197 at-bats. He compiled a .269 average while having 14 doubles, 4 home runs, and 21 RBI.

The following season, he did not get called up until the end of August and he was hot. He only got into 15 games, but hit a home run in the first two he played in and then had a two home run game in September. He finished out the year with a career-high 5 dingers while only getting 46 at-bats. Plus, he hit .370 in the brief call-up.

For his career, Gene Ellis Klutts was a .241 hitter with 14 home runs.

I sent this card to him in November and I had it back eleven days later.
