1976 Hostess #130 - Tom Grieve. Most all Rangers fans are pretty familiar with Tom. After being drafted #1 by the Senators he played all but two of his nine years in the bigs for the Rangers. After retiring he moved to the Rangers front office and served for several years as general manager and now as a broadcaster. While he did trade away Sammy Sosa and Wilson Alvarez he also traded for or signed Rafael Palmeiro, Ivan Rodriguez, Juan Gonzalez, and Bobby Valentine.
I find this card to be a neat glance back over 30 years ago. Tom looks ready to take on the world. Did he even suspect that his son would eventually also make it to the bigs? I doubt it. Also gotta love the setting. Apparently the picture was taken in Kansas City. Not sure if it is the same one or not but the Royals still have the crown just beyond the outfield fence.
