1981 Topps Rick Miller

The front: Nice classic baseball card pose with some Arizona mountains in the background.

The back: Miller had four singles in 16 at-bats for a .250 batting average in the ALCS.

The player: Center fielder Rick Miller played in the major leagues from 1971 to 1985. Except for his 1978-1980 stint with the Angels, he spent his career with the Red Sox. A fine fielder who won a Gold Glove in 1978, miller hit .269 with 28 HR and 369 RBI in 1,482 major league games.

The man: Miller has been a youth coach since his retirement, and has done some coaching at the professional level as well.

My collection: I have 26 of his cards, 1972 to 1986. I would be interested in trading for 1982 Brigham’s/Coca-Cola Red Sox #11.

  1. I think that's Palm Springs. They're weren't in Tempe until a few years later.
