This former Dodgers' World Series hero spent a short time as an infielder for the Mets. For years he held the Mets' all-time record for triples in one season, his total of nine being unsurpassed until Mookie Wilson edged him out in the 1980s.  He's pictured here on his 1958 Topps card. Two cards highlighting Charlie's World Series exploits are shown below, as well as a pretty rare Morrell Meats card.
