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.
