1984 Topps Rangers Stolen Base Leaders

This time I took the 1984 Topps Active Career Leader card format to compare the historical franchise stolen base leaders to the World Series teams. The Rangers card features some sweet fros as well as one of the heroes of game 2. 

Bump Wills is the son of speedster Maury Wills. His father led the league in stolen bases 6 years in a row from 1960-1965. Bump put up consistent if not spectacular numbers during his 6 years in the majors. After a stint in Japan he returned to the Rangers organization as a coach.

Elvis Andrus scored the winning run in game 2 and has led the Rangers in stolen bases all 3 years of his major league career.


  1. As you probably know, Bump was also one of the many, many guys to go through the revolving door at second base for the Cubs after Glenn Beckert left.

  2. Yup. He played 2nd while Ryno was at 3rd. The next year that door stopped revolving when Sandberg moved to 2nd.
