Roy, who was a slick-fielding shortstop in his playing days, is one of the few men ever to serve the Mets as a player, coach, and manager. Yogi Berra, Bud Harrelson, and Bobby Valentine would be the others that I can think of. This is Roy's 1964 Topps regular-issue card, and his 1964 Topps Giants card is among those pictured below.
