Tom was not a baseball superstar, but he has led a charmed life nonetheless. He had one season in the big leagues where he had 20 homers and 80 RBIs, so he did have a good taste of success as a hitter. After his career, he served as a major-league general manager. And afterwards, his son Ben was a slugging outfielder and winner of the Rookie-of-the-Year award. This is Tom's 1979 Topps card.
