1981 Topps Record Breaker: Willie Wilson

The front: Wilson is wearing a lot of Yankee Stadium dirt on his pants as he begins his swing. Wilson played in one day game in the Bronx in 1980, a 14-3 Royals victory on July 20. Wilson went 4-for-5 with a walk.

The back: Wilson’s record was broken by Jimmy Rollins, who had 716 at-bats in 2007. Others to top 700 in a season are Ichiro Suzuki (704 in 2004) and Juan Samuel (701 in 1984).
