1950 Bowman: Countdown to Set Completion #3

One of the last three cards needed for me to complete the 1950 Bowman set is #16 Roy Sievers of the St. Louis Browns.  With this acquisition, I'm down to only Ted Williams and Jackie Robinson for set completion.

Sievers played for 4 different teams over 17 seasons between 1949-1965, making the All-Star team during 4 seasons of his career.  He was the AL Rookie of the year in 1949, but Sievers' best year was probably in 1957, when he led the league in HR, RBI, and Total Bases with the Washington Senators/Nationals.  He appeared on the Hall-of-Fame ballot in 1971 and 1972, but received only a small fraction of the voting.
