The 1970s in America. Bookended by the tragedy at Kent State and the Iranian hostage, with Watergate, Three Mile Island and disco thrown in for good measure. A solemn decade of struggles. Though minor in comparison, the St. Louis Cardinals of the decade were a reflection of the times, namely futility, devastating trades and mediocrity not seen since.

The Lost Decade: Players of the 1970s Cardinals profile all 228 players who wore the uniform during that era, from the Hall of Famers to the late-season callups.

Also included are seasonal recaps, best and worse trades of the decade, as well as decade leaders in a number of hitting and pitching categories.

From Ted Abernathy to Bart Zeller, take a look back to an era and the players who gamely but unsuccessfully toiled on the turf of Busch Stadium II.
