1981 Topps Chicago White Sox Future Stars

Skipping “front” and “back” for this card and just focusing on the players.
Rusty Kuntz
The player: Kuntz was a backup outfielder for the White Sox, Twins and Royals from 1979 to 1985. In 277 games he hit .236 with 5 HR and 38 RBI. He drove in the game-winning RBI of the clinching game5 of the 1984 World Series with a fifth-inning sacrifice fly.

The man: Kuntz has had a long career in coaching. After the 2017 season, he moved from the Royals’ first-base coaching job to a special assistant role due to problems with his vision.

My collection: I have nine of his cards, from 1981 to 1985. I would be interested in trading for 1984 Fleer Update #66.

Fran Mullins
The player: Infielder Fran Mullins played professional baseball from 1979 to 1986. He reached the major leagues with the White Sox in 1980, the Giants in 1984 and the Indians in 1986, hitting .203 with 2 HR and 18 RBI in 106 games.

The man: A CPA, Mullins had a long career in corporate tax and is now an independent corporate tax advisor in Denver.

My collection: I have two of his cards, 1981 Topps and 1985 Topps. I would be interested in trading for 1985 Cramer #180.

Leo Sutherland
The player: Outfielder Leo Sutherland played for the White Sox in 1980 and 1981. In 45 games he hit .248 with 0 HR, 5 RBI and 6 SB.

The man: There is very little online about Sutherland. Anyone know where he is now?

My collection: I have three of his cards, from 1981 to 1982. I would be interested in trading for 1982 TCMA Edmonton Trappers #11.
