1981 Topps Fred Stanley


The front: Simple headshot at Yankee Stadium.

The back: An original Seattle Pilot, Stanley's long career didn't leave room for a blurb.

The player: Fred "Chicken" Stanley played 14 years in the major leagues, including eight for the Yankees, for whom he won World Series rings in 1977 and 1978. Often used as a defensive replacement and backup shortstop, Stanley played in 816 major league games, hitting .216 with 10 HR and 120 RBI. 

The man: He has worked in the Giants' front office for many years, picking up three more World Series rings as an executive. His current title is Special Assistant, Player Development.

My collection: I have 21 of his cards, from 1972 to 1983. I would be interested in trading for 1975 SSPC Yankes #13.
