Stegman was a part time player during his major league career, spending most of his seasons in the minors and joining the big club for stretches at a time. He did play for two more seasons for the AAA teams for both the Blue Jays and Yankees, but after the 1986 season, called it a career. The blurb on the back indicates that Dave was an All-American at the University of Arizona. As with all the 1985 Topps cards, there is a Baseball Trivia Quiz section. On Stegman's card, the question is: "In the 1982 World Series, who became the first player in series history to achieve two 4-hit games?" The answer.
  • Lo-Hi Beckett value: $0.05-$0.15.
