1955 Topps #110 - Gus Zernial (Updated)

Power hitting leftfielder Guz Zernial (b. 1923 - d. 2011) played in the majors from 1949 to 1959 for the White Sox, A's and Tigers. He led the league in home runs in 1951 with 33. He had 1,093 hits, 237 home runs and a .265 batting average. He has the second most home runs by a player with a last name that starts with Z, behind Todd Zeile's 253.
Unfortunately, Gus Zernial passed away the other day, so I had to update this one.
