Johnny Klippstein

1952 Topps

John Calvin Klippstein (October 17, 1927 – October 10, 2003) If you looked up the word “workhorse,” Johnny Klippstein’s picture would be right there. Both a starter and reliever during his 18-year major-league career, Klippstein came up to the Cubs in 1950 at 22 years old and pitched until he was 39. He had some solid seasons for the Cubs and the Reds during the first part of his career. During the second half of his Major League stint, Klippstein successfully morphed into a middle reliever and closer. With Cleveland in 1960, he led the league with 14 saves. Klippstein played in two World Series, winning a ring with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1959. He was on the Twins AL pennant team that lost to the Dodgers in 1965. He retired in 1967 with 101 career wins and 65 saves. An ardent Cubs fan, Klippstein lived in the Chicago area, where he died in 2003 at age 75.
