"This man should be in the Hall of Fame." That was how I opened this little text blurb when I wrote it around the turn of the century.  Now (being December 2013) I can refine that line to: "This man is in the Hall of Fame."  A fine offensive player despite spending half of his career as a catcher. He was a Mets player, then player/manager, then manager. He is, of course, most famous for piloting the Yankees to four World Championships in a span of five years. Pictured here is his 2003 Topps 205 card, and there are more scans shown below.
