Posted By: <b>CN</b><p> One of my favorite teams was the 1977 Yankees. I have always wondered if it is true that Steinbrenner had the Lou Piniella card added to the Burger King Set because he was his favorite player on that team. Also if anyone knows how late in the print run did they add the Piniella. Thanks CN
