1956 Topps #77: Harvey Haddix, St. Louis Cardinals, P

     Harvey Haddix missed an All-Star selection in 1956 for the first time after 3 consecutive All-Star seasons in '53, '54, and '55.  Haddix was the runner-up for the Rookie of the Year award in 1953 winning 20 games with 6 shutouts.  He started 31 games in 1956, striking out 170 batters in 230.1 innings pitched.  Haddix was traded by his original Cardinals team in a 5-player deal that sent him to the Phillies early in the '56 season.
