1981 Topps Record Breaker: Ozzie Smith

The front: Glad they used a picture of him fielding for a fielding record. They haven’t always matched the picture up to the record. Once again we are in Shea Stadium. Smith played in four day games at Shea in 1980, recording eight putouts and 18 assists without an error.

The back: This is still the record, and likely still will be for some time as ground ball rates continue to decline.
