This Luke Appling aquisition bring my total '50B missing card count to only 15 more to go. Appling was inducted into the MLB HOF in 1964 after a 20-year playing career that spanned from 1930-1950--all with the Chicago White Sox. He appeared in 7 All-Star games and often ranked among the league leaders in Batting Average, Hits, On-Base %, and Games Played throughout his playing years. While watching the 1982 World Series a couple years ago, I saw Appling hit a homerun against Warren Spahn at the age of 75 years old during an old-timers game at RFK stadium in Washington, D.C.
This card completed my '50B Chicago White Sox team set as well. Beginning with Luke Appling, there is: Mickey Haefner, Hank Majeski, Phil Masi, Bill Salkeld, Randy Gumpert, Floyd Baker, Dave Philley, Bill Wight, Bob Kuzava, Gus Zernial, Bob Cain, Howie Judson, and Cass Michaels.
