courtesy of carl crawford cards. paul posted some trade bait and i bit. three vintage topps manager cards! too bad none of the managers featured finished the season with the club they represented on the cards.
sawyer was in his second stint as manager of the phillies at this time. he had managed them from 1948 into the 1952 season, winning the pennant in 1950. he was fired 63 games into the '52 season, but was back in 1958 but couldn't prevent a last place finish for the phils. he returned in 1959, but fared no better. after managing just one game in 1960, a loss, he resigned and never managed again.
