1955 Topps Bill Virdon

One of the first cards I made for this blog was a 1955 Bowman card of the A.L. Rookie of the Year Herb Score. The N.L. Rookie of the year in 1955, Bill Virdon, had a Bowman card but not a Topps card that year.

After being named ROY in 1955, Virdon was traded to Pittsburgh in May of '56 where he played the rest of his career. He became manager of the Pirates in '72 and went on to manage the Yankees, Astros and Expos from 1972-1984.
