Luis Aparicio Collection - 1964 Topps

I was going through some of my Dad's stuff the other day and I found a few vintage Luis Aparicio cards. This is the second to last card from that stack.

1964 Topps? Looks more like 2013 Topps Heritage to me. This is one of the better pictures Topps chose for Aparicio. It's another nice posed shot but you can see a little more of his body on this one. The previous years almost all featured head-shots.

1964 would be the last year Lil Luis would lead the league in stolen bases. It was his ninth consecutive year of swiping more bags than any other American League player. He also won another Gold Glove and was an All-Star.
