Gus Zernial (Philadelphia In Bio) - 1951 Topps Red Back

Gus Edward Zernial (June 27, 1923 - January 20, 2011) was one of the game’s most fearsome sluggers of the 1950s, leading the 1951 American League season with 33 home runs, and coming in second in 1953 (42) and 1955 (30). In 1950, he became the first Major Leaguer to hit four home runs in the month of October during the regular season. The left fielder played for the Chicago White Sox (1949-1951) Philadelphia Athletics (1951-1954), Kansas City Athletics (1955-1957) and Detroit Tigers (1958-1959), with his sole All-Star selection coming in 1953. The career .265 hitter retired with 237 home runs, 776 RBI, 572 runs, 159 doubles, 22 triples and 15 stolen bases in 1,234 games. An aggressive ballplayer, Zernial broke his collarbone in 1949 and again in 1954 while diving to make a catch.
