Ozzie Guillén, Miami Marlins — Guillen enjoyed a long and productive Major League career, including 13 seasons with the Chicago White Sox (1985 – 1997). He was the American League Rookie of the Year for 1985, won a Gold Glove in 1990, and was a three-time All-Star.

Terry Collins, Albuquerque Dukes (1980 baseball card)

Terry Collins, New York Mets — I wasn’t able to find any cards from Collins’ days as a minor league ballplayer, so here’s a card from his early coaching days with the AAA Albuquerque Dukes. Collins managed a .255 batting average for his playing career, which never advanced to the Major Leagues.

Charlie Manuel, Minnesota Twins (1970 Topps baseball card)

Charlie Manuel, Philadelphia Phillies — “Chuck” Manuel played for six Major League seasons (1969-75), the first four with the Twins. He played sparingly in his final two seasons, both with the L.A. Dodgers.

Davey Johnson, Washington Nationals — Davey Johnson spent eight years in Baltimore, where he won two World Series rings (1966 & 1970) as a second baseman. He finished his playing career in 1978 with the Chicago Cubs.
