Neither Mitchell or Colson saw time with the Yankees in 1971
Kline was the Yankees number 4 starter in 1971. He finished going 12-13 with an ERA of 2.96 and had 15 complete games. He struck out 81 batters and walked 37 in 222.1 innings pitched. Not bad for a number 4 guy.
Hansen played in 61 games in 1971 and finished with a .207 batting avg, hit 2 home runs and drove in 20 runs.
I used to love the team cards for some reason. glad to see them back in the Topps Heritage series
Michael was the starting SS in 1971. From what I was told, he was a defensive wiz at SS. Wasn't much of a hitter though as he batted .224 with 3 bombs and 35 RBI. Was a better GM as he was the GM when George Steinbrenner was suspended and put the emphasis on getting players who played and wanted to win. He was behind drafting Jeter and trading for O'Neill and Cone. It was with his blueprint that the Yankees started to win again in the 90's and I always felt he was run out of his position too soon, although the Yankees won the titles AFTER he vacated his position, but Steinbrenner kept him around and he is currently an advisor to Brian Cashman, the current Yankee GM.
I think I have a few others. I really need to look throw the monster boxes I have.
