Another tough loss for the Red Sox tonight, they have not looked very good for the most part through 8 games. I need something to distract me, and what better to do so than a new addition to my 1953 Topps baseball set:
1953 was actually Gus' career season. He even garnered some MVP votes that year thanks to his .300 batting average, 30 home runs, 37 doubles and 105 RBI (as well as putting up career best numbers in slugging percentage and OPS). In the end, Gus would crush over 200 home runs and rack up over 900 RBI before his playing days were over. Along the way he was nominated to four All-Star teams, and was even the very first starting right fielder for the Mets!
Set Progress: 67 of 274 (24%)
