White, President. Anyone who thinks that BOBBY BONDS (1946-2003) is merely the father of Barry Bonds is seriously misinformed. A 3-time All-Star and 3-time Gold Glove, Bonds became the first player to hit 30 home runs and steal 30 bases in the same season. He was the first of only two players to hit over 400 homers and steal over 300 bases in his career, a feat matched only by his son. After seven seasons as a San Francisco Giant (1968-1974), Bobby played for 7 more clubs through 1981. Unlike Barry, who has been dogged by controversy during and after his playing days, Bobby Bonds was popular every place he played. He spent 23 seasons as a Giants player, coach, scout and front office official. JOE RUDI (b. 1946) played 16 Major League seasons (1967-1982), but is best remembered as left fielder on three consecutive World Champion Oakland A's teams (1972-1974). A 3-time All-Star and 3-time Gold Glove, he led the AL in hits and triples in 1972 and in doubles in 1974. The emotional DICK WILLIAMS (1929-2011) is the only manager to win pennants with three different teams (the Red Sox, A's, and Padres), as well as win titles in all four divisions. But despite his teams' successes, he always alienated management and players alike with his driving, hard-bitten, "my way or the highway" attitude. He managed six different teams in a career that stretched over 21 years and often included clashes with similarly single-minded owners. In 1972, Williams started the concept of using left handed pitchers and right hander's to overwhelm his opponents. His Oakland Athletics won the 1972, 1973 and 1974 World Series. KENT TEKULVE debuted with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1974 and pitched for the team until 1985, when he went to the Philadelphia Phillies. He finished his career in 1989 in Cincinnati. An All Star in 1980, "Teke" had his best years in 1978 and 1979, when he was fifth in the NL for the Cy Young Award both seasons. He was also among the top ten MVPs in 1979, ranking eighth. From 1988 to 1999, he held the all-time Major League record for most relief appearances. A star pitcher with two teams in the Bay Area (Oakland and San Francisco), VIDA BLUE won both the American League's Cy Young Award and Most Valuable Player - rarely given to a pitcher - in 1971. That year he went 24-8 for the A's, with a league-leading 1.82 ERA and 8 shutouts, plus 301 strikeouts. In a career stretching from 1969 to 1986, Blue won 209 games. Catcher MANNY SANGUILLEN was born in Colon, Panama on March 21, 1944. He played in the MLB from 1967 to 1980 for the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Oakland Athletics. Sanguillen is a three time All-Star and a two time World Series champion (1971 and 1979). With a career batting average of .296 he is tenth on the list for lifetime batting average for a catcher, fourth since World War II. CECIL COOPER played first base and DH'd for the Boston Red Sox (1971-1976) and Milwaukee Brewers (1977-1987), playing in the 1975 World Series for the Red Sox and the 1982 World Series for the Brewers. Cooper led the American League in RBIs in 1980 and 1983 and had a lifetime .298 batting average. During 15 Major League seasons (1973-1987), BILL MADLOCK, primarily a third baseman, led the National League in hitting four times (1975-1976, 1981, 1983). He starred for the Pirates during their World Series victory of 1979. A three-time All-Star, he was the only right handed hitter to lead the NL in hitting between 1971 and 1989. Surrounded by superstars, BERT CAMPANERIS was a key contributor to the great Oakland teams with his competitive spirit and superb play. "Campy" became one of baseball's all-time top base thieves, stealing 649 bases to rank seventh all-time on his retirement and leading the AL six times, including his first four full seasons (1965-68). He was voted All-Star in 1968, 1972-75 and 1977. ROLLIE FINGERS played for the Oakland Athletics from 1968 to 1976. The pitcher also played for the San Diego Padres (1977-1980) and the Milwaukee Brewers (1981-1985) during his 17-year major league career. Fingers, who was known for his sharp slider, notched 341 career saves and appeared in 16 World Series games. In 1981, he won both the American League MVP and Cy Young Award. Fingers was elected to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1992. RON CEY played 17 seasons with the Los Angeles Dodgers (1971-1982), Chicago Cubs (1983-1986) and Oakland A's (1987). The six-time All Star third baseman shared MVP honors with teammates Pedro Guerrero and Steve Yeager in the 1981 World Series, won by the Dodgers over the Yankees in six games. Cey batted .350 as Los Angeles won four games in a row after losing the first two at Yankee Stadium. DAVE KINGMAN retired 20th all-time in career home runs, his best season was 1979 with the Cubs, when he hit .288 and led the league with 48 homers. The most durable player of his era, STEVE GARVEY played a NL-record 1,207 consecutive games. Garvey exploded as a NL star in 1974. He was elected to the All-Star team as a write-in candidate that year, and was voted MVP of the game. Garvey's name would not be left off the All-Star ballot again, and he was elected as a starter the next six years. In 1978, he became the first player to receive more than four million All-Star votes, and he was named MVP of the game that year as well. In ten All-Star Games he hit .393, and his slugging average of .955 is the highest of any player with more than 20 at-bats. The winner of four Gold Gloves, Garvey retired with a .996 fielding average. In 19 Major League seasons (1965-1983), right-handed starting pitcher FERGUSON JENKINS won 284 games, including 6 consecutive seasons with the Chicago Cubs in which he won 20 or more games while striking out 200 or more. National League Cy Young winner in 1971, he led the league in wins twice, made the All-Star team twice, and was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1991. BILL CAMPBELL, a relief specialist, also had a long big league career (1973-1987). With the Minnesota Twins in 1976 set an AL record for wins by a reliever (17). Moving to Boston as a free agent the following year, he won his second consecutive Fireman of the Year award from "The Sporting News". Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
