If you have any more info or interesting anecdotes on the players featured here, please feel free to add in the comments section!
Here are the two from yesterday's post. There were actually a few from this set.
Zernial is a name many of us know. In 11 big league seasons, "Ozark Ike" was a HR-champ and an All-Star. He lead the AL in HRs and RBIs in 1951, with 33 and 129, respectively. He also hit 42 dingers in 1953. Sadly, Gus' career was delayed (as so many were in 1940s) with three years of military service from 1943-1945. He passed away in 2011 at the age of 87.
Now, on to five more randoms autos from this generous seller.
So there's the first batch of autos, which I'll roll out in groups of a couple at a time.
