1981 Topps Jerry White

The front: A candid shot from the batting cage at what I believe is Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia.
The back: In 1980 White hit his first pinch home run, off of Al Hrabosky.
The player: Yet another backup outfielder, White stayed with the Expos through 1983, spent two years in Japan, and ended his career with the Cardinals in 1986. Only twice did he appear in over 100 games or have 200 at-bats.
The man: White was the Twins’ first base coach from 1998 to 2012. He now does some youth coaching.
My collection: I have 11 of his cards, from 1979 to 1983. I would be interested in trading for 1976 Topps #594 and 1977 Topps #557.
