Weak-hitting shortstop Chuck Baker's Twins career lasted for only 40 games in 1981. In those 40 games, he only accrued 70 plate appearances as most of his work came as a defensive replacement. He is definitely one of the more obscure Twins players of the 1980s, but he still managed to find his way into the 1982 Fleer and Topps sets, and those two cards were two of the very first Twins cards I ever owned.
