Well done, Topps!! With many rookie cards, we usually get one future star and one player that disappears after a short time, or in the worst cases, two guys who never amount to anything.
For the Red Sox Rookies card (#314), both players not only became starters during their rookie seasons, but the team went to the World Series! After starting the first 6 games at 2nd base, Reggie Smith was moved to centerfield, Mike Andrews was installed as the starting 2nd baseman, and the Red Sox were off to the races.
