1964 Topps, Wayne Causey
#75 Wayne Causey
Here is the next TTM success. This one is from the former Kansas City A's, Wayne Causey. I sent this card to Wayne with a couple of days left in the year 2012 and I had it back two weeks into 2013.
In addition to playing for the A's, Wayne also played for the Orioles, White Sox, Angels, and Braves during his eleven year career. During that span, Wayne manned all of the infield positions except for first base, seeing more time at third than any other position. He was a .252 hitter for his career that clubbed 35 home runs and knocked in 285 runs.
Wayne's best season came with the A's in 1964. That year, he played in 157 games and had a career-high 604 at-bats. He responded to the increased playing time by having career-highs in average (.281), runs (82), RBI (49), and tying his home run mark of 8. His .281 average was the best on an A's team that lost 105 games that season and finished in the American League cellar.
