1922 American Caramel 240 Series: Rabbit Maranville, Pittsburgh Pirates, SS

     Hall of Famer Rabbit Maranville was already a veteran of 10 years entering his 11th season in 1922.  As a 2nd year Pirate Maranville was very reliable, playing 155 games in a 154-game season.  He came up to bat 746 times, score 115 Runs on 198 Hits, 26 Doubles, 15 Triples, and a .295 batting average.  It took the Pirates three players, including Hall of Famer Billy Southworth, in a trade with the Braves to bring Maranville to Pittsburgh.

Here's Rabbit Maranville inserted into my binder with the rest of the 1922 set reprinted.

Here's what the card looked like when purchased it--before "cracking the slab".
