1963 Topps All Stars - The National League Infield

1963 Topps Orlando Cepeda AS

The "Baby Bull" was having another great year for the N.L. Champs in 1962. He hit .304 with 35 homers and 114 RBIs. Unfortunately, he was 0 for 4 in the 2 All Star games that season.

1963 Topps Bill Mazeroski AS

Mazeroski was a Gold Glove second baseman. And although he hit a historical walk-off homer to win the 1960 World Series, he is not known for his hitting. In his 10 All Star games, he had only 2 hits. Neither hit came in 1962.

1963 Topps Dick Groat AS

The Bucs had the middle infield covered in the 1962 games.  Dick Groat went 3 for 6 over the 2 games with 3 RBIs. He was also hit by a pitch to lead off the 1st inning of the 2nd game.

1963 Topps Ken Boyer AS

Ken Boyer has a .348 batting average over his 11 All Star game appearances but over the 2 games in 1962 he collected only 1 hit in 5 at bats.
