Not a helluva lot of them. I am thinking Mike Schmidt tops the list. Who else?

Ernie Banks. I deleted Mike's post by mistake. He had Cal Ripken, Tony Gwynn and some other guy.

If we count the NFL then the Steelers have a pretty damn good roster of guys that playe for just one team, but that could probably be said for a lot of teams pre-free agency.

Jack Lambert
Jack Ham
Terry Bradshaw
John Stallworth
Lynn Swann
Mike Webster
Mel Blount
Joe Greene

all of them hall of famers, all only played for the Steelers

Alas, Franco Harris played one season with the Seattle weephawks so he's not on the list.

Ryno actually played 6 games for the Phillies as a late season call up before being traded to the Cubs during the off season. He was one of the guys I looked up when naming all those baseball players.

Even though I hate that organization with a burning passion the Montreal Canadiens have a bunch:

- Henri Richard ( 20 seasons and 11 Stanley Cups )
- Maurice Richard ( 18 seasons and 8 Stanley Cups )
- Jean Beliveau ( 20 seasons and 10 Stanley Cups )
- Yvon Cournoyer ( 16 seasons and 8 Stanley Cups )

add Bobby Clarke, Steve Yzerman, Jean BĂ©liveau, Ken Dryden for a good top 5

Sandberg I would say qualifies because outside those 6 games, all his stats came from the Cubs.

Pretty sure Herman Moore played for the NYG a few years ago and sucked. That said, he was excellent for your terrible Lions teams in the 90's.

Well technically he played for 2 teams - Quebec and Colorado. One franchise but two teams. My job here is now done. ;)
