1954 Topps #63: Johnny Pesky, Detroit Tigers, 2B

Perhaps best known to fans as a Boston Red Sox player from 1942-1952, Johnny Pesky was traded to the Detroit Tigers in a 9-player deal in the spring of 1952.  Pesky played for the Tigers through the spring of 1954 when he was traded to the Washington Senators/Nationals to finish out his MLB playing career at the end of that season.

This card is part of the short printed numbers from #51-75 that are valued a little higher than the rest of the 250-card set.
