Default Topps trivia question

I figured if anyone could figure out a question I had you guys could.

Who was the first manager featured on a Topps card after previously being featured on a Topps card as a player?

Default Player to Manager...

Mickey Vernon? He was the Senators manager in the '63 set.

The 1959 Solly Hemus card is a player-manager card and he had previous Topps player cards.

So let's start with Hemus and then work backwards

Probably not the answer you were looking for, but I like Tommy Holmes in the '51 Topps Redback set as player on one card and manager on another.

That's a great answer!. He wasn't a Major League manager, but I hadn't thought of that one.

Casey never appeared on a Topps card as a player. His last year was 1925, more than a quarter of a century before Topps started.

As a pure manager card and not "player-manager" it would be 1960 Topps Bill Rigney or Solly Hemus.

Eddie Stanky was a 2nd baseman on his 1952 Topps card and a manager on his 1954 Topps card.

That sounds like a winner. What does he get?

It reads second base in the position but also reads "The new manager" in the write up on the back of his 52 Topps card?

Stanky had a 1951 Topps Red Back as well as the 1952 Topps as a player. He had manager cards in 1954 Topps and 1955 Topps as well as in the 60s.

Forgot about the 51 Topps card.

So, in 1952 was he actually still playing or was he a manager? The back of his 52 Topps card is confusing.

Edward Raymond “Eddie” Stanky (1916-1999) had a knack for getting on base, posting a .410 on-base percentage for his career, but he was most notably the spark that began the rally leading to Bobby Thomson’s 1951 “Shot Heard ‘Round the World.” Eddie began his career as a middle infielder with the Chicago Cubs (1943-1944), was traded to the Brooklyn Dodgers (1944-1947), then played two seasons with the Boston Braves (1948-1949), the New York Giants (1950-1951) and the St. Louis Cardinals (1952-1953). When Jackie Robinson signed his monumental contract with the Dodgers in 1947, management played the color barrier breaking slugger at first base for his first year in order to keep Stanky at second base. He was part of an excellent fielding infield that included his double play mate, Pee Wee Reese. At second base, Eddie had a .975 career fielding percentage. Stanky led the National League three times in walks, twice in on-base percentage and once in plate appearances and runs scored. During Eddie’s 11-year career, he played in three World Series losing efforts with Brooklyn (1947), Boston (1948) and New York (1951). Eddie Stanky finished his career with a .268 career batting average, 1,154 hits, 811 runs and 364 RBI. Stanky also served as player/manager in St. Louis before taking over all managerial duties (1952-1955) and then managed the Chicago White Sox (1966-1968) and the Texas Rangers (1977) compiling a 467-435 record in 906 games managed.

Eddie was a player-manager in 1952 and 53 and was a full time manager by 54

I can accept Stanky as the answer to this question
