‘Same Card, Different Paths’ – Card #30
1964 Topps – Card #167 – AKA – ‘The Lou Piniella Rookie Card’
Mike Brumley – Playing just 3 seasons with 224 games played, Brumley had a hard time keeping the starting job he had during his rookie campaign. Primarily due to offense, the Washington Senators turned to other players that were able to supply more firepower at the plate. Leaving the sport at just 27 years of age, Brumley retired with a .229 batting average alongside 151 hits, 5 home runs, 50 RBI and 52 runs scored.
Lou Piniella – More known for his managerial success, Lou Piniella enjoyed a solid 18-year career in the big leagues. Winner of the Rookie of the Year award in 1969, ‘Sweet Lou’ was also a 2-time All-star and member of 2 New York Yankees championship teams. Piniella was a career .291 hitter and he amassed 766 RBI and scored 651 runs.
