Vukovich was on the 1975 Reds, but was traded to the Phillies in August. In 1980, Vukovich was joined on the squad by an unrelated player with the same surname, George Vukovich. The Cy Young Award winner for the Brewers was Pete Vuckovich.
Vukovich hit just six home runs in his career, but four of them were against a fairly august group: Jerry Koosman, Nolan Ryan, Mickey Lolich, and Sparky Lyle. Vukovich's homer against Koosman was a game-ending homer.
