Hall of Famer Number 56 - Luis Aparicio

This is the only baseball that I bought straight up from anyone at this show.  I picked up 'Little Louie' from the same guy that I traded my Albert Pujols Stadium Club triple relic auto for my Bill Mazeroski and Don Drysdale balls.

I was able to get Aparicio for $40.  He is someone I have been wanting to get for a while now, since he was a former Oriole.

Aparicio played in the majors from 1956 to 1973 for the White Sox, Orioles and Red Sox.  He won the 1956 AL rookie of the year and the World Series with the Orioles in 1966. 

He retired with 2,677 hits, 506 stolen bases and a .262 batting average.
