1955 Bowman #173: Chico Carrasquel, Chicago White Sox, SS

     Chico Carrasquel came off the 1954 season leading the league in games played and plate appearances, as well as 3 All-Star selections--making All-Star game #4 in 1955.  Carrasquel scored 106 Runs on 158 Hits and 28 Doubles for the White Sox in 1954, and would put up similar numbers again in 1955.  He was a top defensive player at Shortstop, often leading the league in Fielding % as SS, Assists as SS, and Double Plays Turned as SS.  After 6 seasons with the White Sox, Carrasquel was traded with Jim Busby to the Indians for Larry Doby after the 1955 season.
