Sparky: The Detroit Years

“I like when they took my playing record off my baseball card and put on my managing record.”

You got it old man.

Rest in Peace, Sparky.


  1. I just realized...1982 was the only year Topps decided not to make a card with the manager on it. I didn't realize they did it so often, even though I collected for about 4 years after '82.

    Sparky was awesome. I was too young to see the Big Red Machine in all its glory, but I did like his Tigers.

  2. Love the baseball card retrospective. Thanks for sharing it.
