1959 Topps #400: Jackie Jensen, Boston Red Sox, OF

Jackie Jensen was just coming off an all-star season as the reigning AL MVP in 1959.  Jensen would go on to lead the league in RBI for the 3rd time as a Red Sox, as well as take his 1st Gold Glove as an outfielder.  He had come to the Red Sox from the Yankees after the end of the 1953 season, and would continue playing for Boston from 1954-1961 before retiring from baseball.  His sole World Series ring came as a Yankee during his 1950 rookie year.
