Arky.Vaughn.Card.jpg
This 1941 Play Ball trading card depicts Arky Vaughan, the nine-time All-Star shortstop and National League batting champion in 1935. Vaughan played 14 seasons--10 for the Pittsburgh Pirates and four for the Brooklyn Dodgers. He was a patient hitter who sprayed line drives to all fields and took advantage of the dimensions of his home ballpark, horseshoe-shaped Forbes Field; Vaughan led the NL in triples three times and finished with a career total of 128. He was named Player of the Year in 1935 by The Sporting News and inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1985. Most historians rate Vaughan among the Top 5 shortstops of all time.
