1956 Topps #296 Andy Seminick

Andy Seminick made his debut with the Phillies in 1943 at the age of 22. He played with the Phillies from 1943 until 1951, and again from 1956 until 1957. (Andy caught with the Reds from 1952 to 1955). He was the Whiz Kids' starting catcher in 1950, a year in which he hit .288 with 24 home runs and 68 RBI. Following his playing career, Andy coached for the Phillies from 1957 to 1958 and again from 1967 to 1969. He remained with the Phils until the mid-'80s as a roving minor league instructor.

This was another August 1989 Bridgeton baseball card show purchase, acquired for $1.50.
