December Braves 1960 - 1962

I picked up a few 1960 to 1962 Topps Braves cards at the December show.

1960



312 - Charlie Lau
Charlie was a back-up catcher most of his career.  He is more famous for becoming a hitting coach.  He worked with several stars on their stances, most notably George Brett.


515 - Stan Lopata
Another back-up catcher, in 1959 Stan only hit only .104 in 48 at bats.



534 - Ken McKenzie
Pitched in the minors in 1959 before being called up to the Braves in 1960.

1961

105 - Carl Willey
Pitched out of the bullpen in 1960 with a 6 and 7 record.

1962


100 - Warren Spahn
Warren had an average season in 1961.  Average for him, that is.  He went 21 and 13 with a 3.01 ERA and won his 300th game.


265 - Joe Adcock
Joe had a great season in 1961 with 35 homeruns and 108 RBI.  1962 would prove to be Joe's last season with the Braves.



443 - Del Crandall
Del only played 15 games because of injury in 1961.

Next up will be a bunch of 1967 cards I picked up.
