CAREER CAPPER: 1970 KEN BOYER

Let’s cap off former MVP Ken Boyer’s career with a 1970 card after wrapping up a very nice 15-year career:


Boyer played out his Major League playing days with 25 games for Los Angeles, hitting .206 while playing first base.
That would mark the end of a career that saw him top a .300 batting average five times, drive in 100 or more runs twice and score 100+ three times while collecting over 2000 hits, slam 282 homers and drive in over 1100 runs.
He also would cop the 1964 National League Most Valuable Player Award after leading the team to a World Series win over the New York Yankees.
He was also named to seven all-star teams while taking home five Gold Gloves for his fielding at third base.
