As the second half of the 2012 MLB season is now underway, it seems like an appropriate time to post another card towards my 1953 Topps set:
I think the White Sox knew the end might be near for Kennedy, because despite one pretty solid season with the club they dealt him to the Red Sox prior to the '53 season. He was mediocre in 16 games for Boston in 1953, and didn't make another MLB appearance until he landed with the Cincinnati Reds for the 1956 season. He pitched a single game that season, giving up 4 earned runs over 2 innings for an ERA of 18.00 on the year. Kennedy got one last shot with the Reds in 1957, but his career was over after he went 0-2 with an ERA of 6.39 in just 8 games.
Set Progress: 47 of 274 (17%)
Team MVPs: 1984 Fleer - I'm offering another apology to 1981 Topps. I've promised twice now that the next set that I would profile in this Team MVPs series would be 1981 Topps. ...
