Gerald Staley Black Back

1952 Topps

Gerald Lee “Gerry” Staley (August 21, 1920 - January 2, 2008) spent 15 seasons as a Major League Baseball pitcher, and as a member of the 1959 Chicago White Sox led the American League in games pitched (67) and games finished (37). The St. Louis Cardinals selected Staley in the 1942 minor league draft, but he would spend three years in the armed forces during World War II before finally taking to the mound for St. Louis (1947-1954). He put together an 89-76 record with a 4.03 ERA before being traded to the Cincinnati Reds (1955) and then the New York Yankees (1955-1956) before signing with the White Sox (1956-1961). He posted some of his best numbers in Chicago, compiling a 38-25 record and a personal best .261 ERA in 270 games, helped take the squad to the 1959 World Series, where he pitched in four games. He ended his playing days with stints on the Kansas City Athletics (1961) and Detroit Tigers (1961). A three-time All-Star (1952, 1953, 1960), Staley appeared in 640 career regular season games, and posted a 134-111 record with a 3.70 lifetime ERA, 58 complete games, 61 saves, and nine shutouts.
