1955 Topps #30 - Vic Power

Vic Power (b. 1927 - d. 2005) was born Victor Pellot in Puerto Rico. He played under the name 'Vic Power' due to ridicule during his playing days in French Quebec. His last name of Pellot was closely similar to a french slang term for vagina. Sorry guys. Stating facts.
Anyway, Power played from 1954 to 1965 for the A's, Indians, Twins, Angels and Phillies. He compiled career numbers of .284 batting average, 126 home runs and 658 RBIs. was an All Star in 1955, 56, 59 and 60 and received 7 Gold Gloves.
