FANTASY COACH CARD- 1978 FRANK ROBINSON

Here’s a fantasy coach card for Hall of Fame slugger Frank Robinson, who was back in Baltimore after a managerial stint in Cleveland, making him the first African-American Major League skipper:


After his prolific playing career that saw him wallop 586 homers, garner two MVP Awards (one in each league), and win two championships while with the Orioles, Robinson put together a long and respected post-playing career that STILL has him working for the Commissioner as Senior Advisor.
In between, he not only led the Indians, but also went on to managerial jobs with the Baltimore Orioles, San Francisco Giants and Montreal Expos/Washington Nationals.
One of THE respected voices in baseball, Robinson has managed to equal his spot in baseball history off the playing field as well as on it.

  2. The back of his jersey must say F. ROBINSON because Brooks Robinson was still playing in '77.
