1981 Topps Ken Oberkfell

The front: Looks like he just hit a pop-up. Not sure where this is. Might not be Shea this time. Wrigley Field?

The back: 1980 was Oberkfell’s last season at second base; Tommy Herr’s emergence would push him to third, where he would help the Cardinals win a World Series in 1982.

The player: Oberkfell, though never a star, was a useful 3B-2B for the Cardinals and Braves from 1977 to 1988. He then played for four teams in four years as a pinch hitter-bench player, ending his career with the Angels in 1992.

The man: Oberkfell has coached since his retirement. He is currently the hitting coach for the independent Gateway Grizzlies.

My collection: I have 48 of his cards, from 1980 to 1991. I would be interested in trading for 1984 O-Pee-Chee #102.
