Monte Irvin - 1951 Topps Red Back

Monford Merrill “Monte” Irvin (February 25, 1919 - January 11, 2016) made a relatively seamless transition from the Negro Leagues to the Major Leagues. Irvin was a five-time Negro League All-Star and twice won the Negro League batting title. Moving over to the big leagues, Irvin played eight seasons for the New York Giants (1949-1955) and Chicago Cubs (1956). Monte made an immediate impact as an everyday Giant player hitting .299 or better for his first four seasons and leading the league in RBI in 1951. Irvin helped lead the Giants to the 1951 National League pennant as well as 1954 World Series championship. Seemingly playing in familiar territory, in 1951, Irvin, Hank Thompson and Willie Mays became the first all black outfield in the majors. Monte Irvin retired with 731 hits, 366 runs, 443 RBI, 99 home runs and a career .293 batting average. The Negro Leagues Committee elected Monford Merrill “Monte” Irvin to the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1973.
