The latest addition to my 1953 Topps baseball set is Mr. Cal Abrams of the Pittsburgh Pirates:
1953 was Cal's best year by a long shot, his .286 batting average was a career high (if you don't count 1 hit in 3 at-bats for the White Sox to close out his career in 1956). He also set career highs that season with 15 home runs (never hit more than 6 any other year) and 43 RBI (never had more than 32 any other year). He'd play with Baltimore and then briefly with Chicago before retiring.
