Joe Collins - 1952 Topps

Joseph Edward Collins (born Joseph Edward Kollonige, December 3, 1922 - August 30, 1989) enjoyed one of the most successful careers in the history of Major League Baseball, winning six World Series in a span of 10 years, the duration of his entire career. The New York Yankees signed Joe in the late 1930s and he spent the better part of a decade in their minor league system until he was eventually called up to play first base. Collins played first for the Yankees during one of the most successful eras in the history of modern sports. Because he batted left and threw left, first was the only infield position for the 6’0” New Jersey native. He was present for the player turnover that ushered Joe DiMaggio and Phil Rizzuto out and Mickey Mantle, Billy Martin and Whitey Ford in with Yogi Berra as a constant. Joe hit a career .256 average over his ten years in pinstripes, but showed little power though he did crack 16 home runs from 1952- to 1955. Collins’ best season came in 1952 when he hit .280 with 18 dingers, 120 hits, 69 runs scored and 59 RBI. He was an exceptional fielder and posted a .990 fielding percentage with 4,555 putouts, 376 assists, 49 errors and 580 double plays in 4,980 chances at first. Joe Collins participated in seven World Series where he hit four significant home runs in 36 postseason games. Joe Collins finished his career with a .256 average, 596 hits including 86 home runs, 404 runs scored and 329 RBI in 908 career games.
