1955 Topps #122: Carl Sawatski, Chicago White Sox, C

Carl Sawatski went over to the White Sox from the Cubs before the start of the '54 season.  He served as a back-up catcher to Sherm Lollar along with Matt Batts, catching 243.2 of 1383.0 innings in 33 games behind the plate.  Sawatski actually played minor league ball in 1955-1956, before reaching the majors again in time to earn a World Series ring with the Braves in 1957.
