1973 Topps - Rich Hinton.

The Rangers had yesterday off following their two game sweep by the Cubs. Tonight they are in Kansas City trying to get back in the win column.

The next card we come to in the 1973 Topps team set is number 321, Rich Hinton. Rich appeared for five games for Texas in 1972. In 1973 he didn't appear in the big leagues at all and not with any Rangers' affiliated team.

On March 8, 1973 the Rangers traded Rich and Vince Colbert to Cleveland. The Tribe sent Alex Johnson to Texas in return. That was the final word on Rich Hinton's association with the Texas Rangers.
