1965 Topps Bert Campaneris

Kansas City Athletics CTNW Favorites #1

In 1965 Topps put out this card listing Bert Campaneris as a Shortstop and an Outfielder. But on September  8th 1965 Campaneris played not only shortstop and every position in the outfield but every other position on the field as well. To commemorate the feat I have created cards for the other positions he played.

Campy was the first Major Leaguer to play all 9 positions in a single game. Since then 3 others have joined him: Cesar Tovar of the Twins in 1968, Scott Sheldon of the Rangers in September 2000, and most recently Shane Halter of the Tigers in October 2000.
