World Series Rings Again

Jack Morris was the only one I could quickly think of who won rings with three teams and had a Kellogg's card.  He was in the 1982 and 1983 sets.  



When someone mentioned Lonnie Smith, I recalled hearing that somewhere.  Smith also appeared in the 1983 set.


Steve Carlton and Jay Johnstone won three as well, but neither played in the World Series for all three teams.  Johnstone was in the 1977 set and Carlton was in the sets in 1973, 1977 to 1983 and 1991.



Carlton and Smith were both born on December 22nd.

Morris and Smith were both born in 1955 and they played their last games during the same week, a week where I had to change my vacation plans.  Why?

  1. Thought of Lonnie Smith as the day went on. Wasn't sure he had a Kellogg's card

  2. Ugh. Can't believe I didn't think of Morris. Oh well. That Kellogg's Carlton is sweet!

  3. Most of my 1979s are of the yellowed, thicker card variety. I really like the ones that have a white border and thinner card stock instead of the yellowed ones.
