1964 Topps, Don Lock
#114 Don Lock
Here is the second card of Don Lock that I have posted in the past month. This one, like the previous one, was obtained at Rock's Dugout bi-monthly card show in 2013. This one, unlike the previous one, came out looking really good as Don's Sharpie had not crapped out quite yet. Just check out the previous card of Don to see what I mean.
Don spent eight years in the Major Leagues, spending the first five with the Washington Senators. During that time, Don had two really good seasons in DC. That was in 1963 and '64, Don's second and third season in the Majors. Over those two seasons, he averaged a .250 average, 27.5 home runs, and 81 RBI. Even though he did not make the All Star team either year, he did collect some MVP votes for the '64 season. That year, he was clearly the best position player on a bad Senators team that finished the season 62-100.
For his career with the Senators, Don was a .240 hitter with 99 home runs and 286 RBI.
