1955 Topps #14 - Jim Finigan

I think it's always cool to see former teams' logos, especially since the team hasn't been in existence for years...

Here we have a player from the Kansas City Athletics. Pretty cool.
Jim Finigan (b. 1928 - d. 1981) was an infielder for six seasons for the A's, Tigers, Giants and Orioles. He ended his career with 422 hits and a .264 average.
The A's moved to Kansas City from Philadelphia in 1955, so this card is the first Topps card to represent the Kansas City A's. The A's stayed in Kansas City for 12 years, until they moved to Oakland for the 1968 season.
