1950 Bowman #119: Dick Sisler, Philadelphia Phillies, OF

Did you know that George Sisler had a couple of sons who played in the Majors too?  Dick Sisler helped the Phillies clinch the NL pennant on the last day of the 1950 regular season by hitting a homerun in the top of the 10th inning with 2 men on base.  Their opponents, the defending NL champion Dodgers, had no answer for the Phillies during the bottom half of the 10th inning at Ebbets Field--and the "whiz kids" were in the World Series again for the first time since 1915.  Earlier that same year, Sisler also made his only career All-Star appearance during his best major league season.  Dick Sisler played in the majors between 1946-1953 for 3 different teams including the 1946 WS Champion Cardinals.

BV: $40.00 (for semi-stars)
Cost: $1.29 (paid 3% BV)
Condition: GD-VG 2.5 (worth 25% BV)
Completion: 24 of 252 (9% complete)
Comment:  This was an unlisted card in Beckett Monthly, so I had to choose between a $15 common, $40 semi-star, or $60 unlisted star.
