Wally Moon - 1954 Topps

Wallace Wade “Wally” Moon (April 3, 1930-) had the distinct honor of replacing Hall of Fame right fielder Enos Slaughter on the St. Louis Cardinals roster in 1954, to which he then proceeded to easily win the MLB and Sporting News Rookie of the Year Awards over future Hall of Famers Ernie Banks, Hank Aaron and All-Star Gene Conley. Despite being instructed to attend the Cardinals minor league training camp, Wally showed up at spring training in St. Petersburg threatening to try out for the big club or quit baseball. He filled Slaughter’s spot, who was traded to the New York Yankees, impressively as he batted .304 with 12 home runs and 76 RBI. He averaged .298 with 151 hits and 70 RBI in his first seven seasons in the Majors. Moon played 12 seasons with the Cardinals (1954-1958) and the Los Angeles Dodgers (1959-1965) with his best season coming in 1961 when he batted .328 with 152 hits and 88 RBI while leading the league in on-base percentage (.434). Wally earned three National League All-Star selections, won the 1960 NL Gold Glove and won the 1959 and 1965 World Series titles with the Dodgers. Moon posted a .980 career fielding percentage with 3,133 putouts, 174 assists, 133 double plays and 68 errors in 3,375 chances. Wally Moon finished his career after amassing 1,399 hits including 212 doubles and 142 homeruns, scoring 737 runs and driving in 661 RBI over the course of 12 years. He is often recognized by his relatively thick “uni-brow”, prevalent on his numerous trading cards.
