1962 Topps Leon Wagner All Star MVP

The second All Star Game of 1962 was played at Wrigley Field in Chicago. The National League was routed 9-4. The American League hero was the starting left fielder from the L.A. Angels, Leon Wagner. Wagner went 3 for 4 with a 2 run homer and was named the All Star Game MVP. 

In 1961 Wagner and the rest of the Angels played in Wrigley Field in Los Angeles. At the time Wrigley Field in L.A. was built, Wrigley Field in Chicago was still called Cubs Park. The original Wrigley Field was also in Southern California. It was the Cubs' spring training facility in Catalina.
