1955 Topps #19 - Billy Herman

FINALLY. Another Hall of Famer. Trust me, I didn't know he was one until I checked, but I'm glad we have our third...
Billy Herman (b. 1909 - d. 1992) was a second baseman for the Cubs, Dodgers, Braves and Pirates from 1931-1943 and 1946-1947. He was a 10-time All Star who ended his career with 2,345 career hits and a .304 lifetime average. He was also a manager for the Pirates and Red Sox. He was elected to the Hall of Fame by the Veterans Committee in 1975.
