1976 SSPC: #536 Félix Millán (Mets)

1976 SSPC #536 Felix Millan

Félix Millán… Was a three-time All-Star and a two-time Gold Glove winner… naturally this all happened when he was with the Braves, not with the Mets.

‘Round here, folks call me:  Felix The Cat

In 1976, Félix Millán… was the starting 2nd baseman for the Mets, batted .282 and had a .341 on-base percentage.

This card… Makes me wonder why he’s holding the microphone…  Possibly being interviewed by the Mets triumvirate of broadcasters, Ralph Kiner, Bob Murphy and Lindsey Nelson.

So… take your time… and tell me… Is it Shea?  Undoubtedly.

Betcha didn’t know… Millán played three seasons for the Yokohama Taiyo Whales.

1976 Joe… and his friends used to choke up on the Wiffleball bat to imitate Millán’s batting style .
