In 1976, Johnny Grubb… played all three outfield positions as well as at 1st and third. He batted .284 with 54 runs and 27 RBI.

Shea-o-meter: Many of the photos in 1976 SSPC were taken in Shea Stadium; Every team came through Shea because the Yankees were temporarily playing in Shea while Yankee Stadium was being renovated. “Can two Major League teams share a ballpark without driving each other crazy?”

This photo is in Shea.
Shea: 47
Pretty sure it’s Shea: 8
Can’t tell: 10
Not Shea: 6

Betcha didn’t know… that even though he’s naturally right-handed, he bats left… and yet was not a switch-hitter.

SSPC vs. Topps: This card is less visually dynamic than the Topps card, but unlike Topps you can actually see Johnny’s face.
