Ken Boyer

Kenton Lloyd Boyer
Batted: Right
Threw: Right
Height: 6'2"
Weight: 200 lbs.
Born: May 20, 1931 in Liberty, MO
Signed: 1949 by the St. Louis Cardinals
Acquired: traded from the Cardinals for
Charley Smith and Al Jackson, October 1965
Departed: traded to the Chicago White Sox with a player to be named later (
Sandy Alomar) for Bill Southworth and a player to be named later (J. C. Martin), July 1967
Died: September 7, 1982 in St. Louis, MO

 

Ken was a National League MVP and a many-time All-Star. He managed the Cardinals briefly. And as you can see by the card on the right (from 1965 Topps), he once hit a grand slam home run in the World Series to defeat the Yankees. Pretty good stuff.  More items are pictured below, including his '55 Topps rookie card, and a pretty hard-to-find pin from 1956 Topps.
