1960 Topps
'59 W.S. Luis swipes base


The Chicago White Sox faced the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 1959 World Series with L.A. winning four games to two.

This scene shows Hall-of-Famer Luis Aparicio sliding safely into second base. I think the Dodgers second baseman is Charlie Neal.

There's no question that this is a poor old baseball card, but the back is still readable and the colors are still vibrant. They just don't make cards like this anymore.

An interesting note about Game 5: Bob Shaw, Billy Pierce and Dick Donovan combined for a shutout for the White Sox. Sandy Koufax took the loss for the Dodgers.
