George Sisler | Sisler's 1922 season — during which he batted .420, hit safely in a then-record 41 consecutive games, led the American League in hits (246), stolen bases (51), triples (18), and was probably the best fielding first baseman in the game — is considered by many historians to be among the best individual all-around single-season performances in baseball history.

The players that were left out included the NL Rookie of the Year, Bob Horner for whom a card was created in my last post. In this card, I included the 4 others…

For this post I am creating a single rookie card for 4 others who received Rookie of the Year votes but were left out by Topps. The sad…
