A slugging giant during the 1960s, Frank is a former AL home run champion. After his playing days, he served as a respected member of many coaching staffs, and twice found himself holding the managerial reins. He's pictured at the right on a 1971 Topps card celebrating his home-run crown from the year before, and below on several oddball inserts, including a Topps Supers card from the early 1970s as well as a 1964 Topps Coin.
