Wayne Garrett

Ronald Wayne "Red" Garrett
Batted: Left

Height: 5'11"
Weight: 183 lbs.
Born: December 3, 1947 in Brooksville, FL

Despite statistics that are modest by today's standards, Wayne was a mainstay in the Mets' lineup for eight years. He consistently posted good on-base percentages, and played more games at third base for the Mets than anyone in history before him. He slammed two home runs in the 1973 World Series. This is his 1972 Topps card; five more cards below.
