Airbrushed Fridays: 1976 Topps Traded #85T


Oh Mickey, you're so fine. You're so fine, you blow my mind. Hey Mickey.

Who is he? Mickey Rivers, or "Mick the Quick" as he was often known, was a speedy center fielder who played throughout the '70s and the first half of the '80s. He also probably had to suffer through a few Toni Basil moments throughout the latter stages of his career.


How did he get here? After beginning his big league career with the Angels, Rivers was traded to the Yankees straight up for Bobby Bonds. It was in New York where his career would really blossom, as he made his only All-Star appearance with the Yankees. He also won two World Series rings on those Reggie Jackson era teams.

Repeat offender? No
