1967 Topps Woody Woodward - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

Topps sets from the 1960s are littered with guys like Woodward. Put simply, he wasn’t very good and if teams had modern analytics available to them, we would have never heard of him. I wonder if his career would have had its second act?

That second act is how I suppose most baseball fans remember him. He had short stints as GM for the Yankees and the Phillies. He would later spend a number of years as the GM for the Mariners where he drafted Alex Rodriguez and traded for Randy Johnson.
