1951 Topps #B-24: Sherm Lollar, St. Louis Browns, C

     Sherm Lollar was just coming off of an All-Star season in 1951, which would be his last with the St. Louis Browns.  He had originally been called up to the Indians in 1946 after 3 years in the minors, and then spent the next two years with the Yankees before reaching the Browns.  Lollar's 1951 season was marked by a league top 5 performance in Putouts, Assists, and Range Factor/Game as a catcher.  After the season's end, he would be involved in an 8-player trade that would send Lollar to the White Sox for the rest of his MLB career through 1963.
