1981 Topps Traded #770 - Marc Hill

On this day in 1981, Marc Hill signed with the White Sox through free agency.

Marc played the backup role behind Carlton Fisk for parts of six seasons on the South Side. His average was low, but his fielding and versatility as an occasional corner infielder made up for it.

Steve,

I seem to remember that between the regular set and the traded set, there were about 6 or 8 White Sox catchers with 1981 Topps cards.

The regular set had the 1980 catchers and the update set had the 1981 catchers. A lot had to do with an ownership turnover in the offseason and the acquisition of Carlton Fisk.
