Maury Wills (N.L. MVP '62) - 1963 Fleer

Maurice Morning Maury Wills (October 2, 1932-) became the first player to make the Major Leagues that the Topps Baseball Card Company passed on signing on the advice of Los Angeles Dodgers (Wills’ team) and others scouts. The Brooklyn Dodgers originally signed Maury in 1951, but he would not debut until 1959 with, now, Los Angeles due to his mediocre and often erratic play in the minor leagues. However, once Wills broke the everyday lineup in 1960, he reminded clubs that there were more ways to score and force plays as he led the National League in stolen bases with 50 while batting .295. That season, he began a streak of six consecutive years leading the NL in stolen bases. Wills enjoyed his greatest year as he topped the century mark stealing 104 bases and led the NL in games, plate appearances, at-bats, triples and caught stealing as he batted .299 and earning the 1962 NL Most Valuable Player Award. From 1961-1969, Maury also led the NL in caught stealing seven times. Maury overcame his shortcomings in the minor leagues both at the plate as well as in the field and won two NL Gold Gloves at shortstop and was named to seven All-Star Games. Wills was a huge factor in the Dodgers lineup that played in four World Series during his time in LA, winning the 1959, 1963 and 1965 Fall Classics. Maury played 14 years in the Majors with the Dodgers (1959-1966, 1969-1972), the Pittsburgh Pirates (1967-1969) and the Montreal Expos (1969) posting a respectable .963 fielding percentage with 2,550 putouts, 4,804 assists, 859 double plays and 284 errors in 7,638 chances. Maury Wills ended his career with a .281 career batting average, 2,134 hits including 177 doubles and 71 triples, scored 1,067 runs, stole 586 bases and drove in 458 RBI.
