Two weeks ago I went to my LCS for their Wednesday night auction.I picked up this 1952 Bowman Gil McDougald RC for $4.50. It's not in great shape, but I love it.
I've always wanted to get the RC of every player to win the Rookie of the Year Award. McDougald won the 1951 A.L. Rookie of the Year Award.
McDougald was a 5 time All-Star during his 10 seasons with the New York Yankees and was on 5 World Championship teams.
He retired after the 1960 World Series because he thought the Yankees wouldn't protect him from the expansion draft and didn't want to end up on the Angels or Senators. He was just 32 years old.
