In 1960: The White Sox were coming off their '59 AL championship and World Series loss to the Dodgers. They slipped to third, 12 games behind the pennant winning Yankees and four behind the upstart Orioles. Roy Sievers, Minnie Minoso and Al Smith were the hitting leaders for the club with Luis Aparicio adding speed and defense. In an era where they were refered to as the Go-Go Sox they actually had a pretty well rounded offense. Not a ton of power but they were high in the AL ranks in such things as runs scored and OPS.
Billy Pierce, Early Wynn and Bob Shaw were the big three in the rotation.
Manager Card: Al Lopez
He won a pennant with each of the franchises he managed and was a pretty darn good ballplayer during his playing days as well. In 19 seasons as a catcher he made a couple of All Star squads.
The Card: Way off center but I'm not about to upgrade a coaches card. The floating head coaches cards always remind me of being a young collector. For some reason these fascinated my friends and I.
