Default Card for Player with Shortest Career

I had the good fortune to sit down and speak with Bobby Durnbaugh last Friday. He played in two games for the Cincinnati Reds in 1957 and said his callup was the best week of his life.

Bobby did not have a card produced, but it made me wonder what pro player had a card published but had the shortest career in the majors?

I would guess Moonlight Graham, but his case is unique.

There was that guy who was hit in the head from the Marlins on his first AB and never made it back to the show until he made a campaign for himself last year. I think the mets picked him up this year.

How about Memo Luna 1954 Bowman #222 pitched 2/3 of an inning in one game for the Cardinals and took the loss in his only big league appearance.

Emil Geiss got about five too many poses in the Old Judge set for his one start in the majors. One it which he gave up 17 hits and 11 runs.

Let's nominate Ray Ryan who was in the T206 with Roanoke among other sets. He was active with the 1908 White Sox, but never appeared in a game. He went on to become a prominent minor league manager and president of the Appalachian League.

Larry Yount. He was a relief pitcher that started to warm up on the mound and hurt his arm. Never threw a pitch officially ever. Is that too short?
