Lou Brock

 

Hall of Famer Lou Brock was best known for his base stealing, leading the league eight times, breaking Ty Cobb's all-time major league career steals record, and breaking Maury Wills's single-season record. But he was much more then that. He topped 200 hits in a season four times and finished with 3023 hits which contributed to his career .293 career batting average. He led the NL in doubles and triples in 1968. He also finished his career with 149 home runs and 900 RBI's, very respectable numbers for someone that was a leadoff hitter most of his career.

Brock was an All-Star for six seasons, and was the runner-up for the NL Most Valuable Player Award in 1974 when he had 118 stolen bases.

For a brief time, Lou was a member of the Harlem Globetrotters as noted here.

  1. That Action packed card is really cool. Lives up to the brand's name for sure.

    I don't have a Brock postcard but I did buy a replica #20 Cardinals jersey at a shop in Cooperstown almost 30 years ago.

Luis Aparicio

Luis Aparicio was known for his speed and fielding. He led the American League in stolen bases a (still) record nine straight seasons, and racked up nine Gold Glove Awards over the span of his career. The White Sox were well served by shortstops for quite a stretch of time. HoFer Luke Appling held the spot from 1930-1950, then Aparicio manned the position from 1956-1962, then again from 1968-1970. Between 1950 and 1955, the position was well served by four time All-Star Chico Carrasquel. Top row: 69 Topps; 72 Topps; and a 72 Topps IA. Middle row: 73 APBA game card; Newspaper clipping of early 70's all-star game starters; and a 73 Topps. Bottom row: 74 Topps; 77 TCMA/Galasso; and an 87 Baseball Immortals (SSPC HoF) card. Second sheet, top row: 2001 Fleer Greats of the Game; 2002 Topps Reprint of 1960 Topps; and a 2005 Upper Deck Legendary Cuts (why did UD have to print landscape cards with an opposite orientation from almost every other card manufacturer?

Richie Ashburn

Richie Ashburn accumulated 2,574 hits with a lifetime batting average of .308 and an on-base percentage of .396 in his 15 year career. With only 29 home runs, he was a true "spray hitter." Ashburn accumulated the most hits (1,875) of any batter during the 1950s. He appears to be well regarded as a center fielder. There are two funny stories I learned of Ashburn from Baseball-Reference. The first: "During an August 17, 1957 game Ashburn hit a foul ball into the stands that struck spectator Alice Roth, wife of Philadelphia Bulletin sports editor Earl Roth, breaking her nose. When play resumed Ashburn fouled off another ball that struck her while she was being carried off in a stretcher. Ashburn and Mrs. Roth maintained a friendship for many years, and the Roths' son later served as a Phillies batboy." The second: "One oft-told story is that on short flies to center or left-center, center fielder Ashburn would collide with shortstop Elio Chacón. Chac

Ballplayers Turned Announcers, Actors, Writers, Etc.

  We all know of ballplayers that become announcers, actors, or writers. This post shows cards for a few notable examples, as well as a few other players with occupations that you may not be aware of. Announcers 1952 Topps card #227.
