1956 Topps #319: Jack Crimian, Kansas City Athletics, P

Jack Crimian pitched 54 games for the Kansas City A's in 1956.  He started some and he finished some, striking out more batters than he walked.  Crimian originally signed with his hometown Phillies in 1944, but joined the Army and didn't get a chance to play in the majors until after the Cardinals drafted him upon returning.  Crimian was traded to the Athletics after the team's inaugural season in October 1955.  He continued playing in the majors through 1957, and professionally through 1959.  At the age of 90, he is currently one of the oldest living major leaguers (#72).
