#34 Jim Perry

Jim was traded to the Twins on May 2nd, 1963. The righthander led the A.L. in victories as a sophomore in 1960. 

 

 

 

 

 

#54 Sam Mele

Sam has done a remarkable job with the Minnesota Twins since taking over their reins mid way through the 1961 season. When the former big league slugger joined the team, the Twins were in 9th place. One year later, the Minnesota club finished second behind the pennant winning Yankees. During his playing days, Sam saw action with the Boston Red Sox, the Washington Senators, the Chicago White Sox, the Baltimore Orioles, the Cincinnati Reds and the Cleveland Indians. Although used primarily as an outfielder, he was also a part-time first baseman. The ballhawk won two American League fielding titles as an outfielder in 1951 and 1953. In Sam's ten years in the major leagues,  he played under ten different big league managers. Mele tied a major league record in a game in 1952 by hitting a triple and home run in one inning.

 

  

#73 Jimmie Hall

Jim set an A.L. mark with 33 homers as a rookie in 1963! 

 

 

 

 

 

#81 All-Star Vets (Killebrew)

...Another American League All-Star regular is the Twins' Harmon Killebrew. The mighty man from Minnesota won the American League's home run title for a second consecutive year. Besides being a formidable slugger, Harmon has shown versatility in the field. The colossal clouter has played first, second, third and the outfielder. 

 

 

 

#90 Earl Battey

Another of the Twins' long ball threats, Earl broke his own personal home run record last season. A top basketball player in high school, Earl almost signed a contract with the Harlem Globetrotters. 

 

 

 

  

#116 1964 Rookie Stars 

Jay Ward - Jay's career began in '56 when he batted .331 with Kearney. A strong lad, this Twin rookie hit 22 HRs in the Southern Association in '59.

 

Tony Oliva - In 64 games in the Appal. League in 1961, Tony batted a sensational .410! Last season, the young outfielder hit .304 in the P.C.L. 

 

  

#156 Bill Dailey

The Twins made a great deal when they snared Bill Dailey from the Indians before the 1963 season began. The righthander became one of the top relief specialists in the majors as he finished 2nd in the A.L. in appearances. Bill was a 17 game winner with Keokuk in the I.I.I League in 1955. In the minors, he won three ERA crowns. 

 

 

  

#177 Harmon Killebrew

Harmon won the AL homer crown for the 2nd consecutive year in '63. 

 

 

 

 

 

#194 John Goryl

Breaking in with Bluefield in 1951, John hit .314. Three years later in the I.I.I. circuit, the infielder batted .314 and led the league with 38 doubles. John has played the outfield too. 

 

 

 

 

#223 George Banks 

George led the Florida State League in triples and RBIs in 1958. A Yankee farm product, he hit .412 against his ex-mates in 1962. 

 

 

 

 

 

#245 Dick Stigman

Nothing but stats! 

 

 

 

 

 

#258 Garry Roggenburk

Gary certainly didn't waste too much time in the minors. The youngster keeps the ball and sports good control, which makes him a valuable man in the bullpen. A star hurler in college, Gary was the co-captain in the N.I.T. championship squad in 1962. The southpaw is a good hitting pitcher too.

 

 

 

 

#270 Rich Rollins

Rich proved that there is no such thing as the sophomore jinx as he finished third in the American League in batting in 1963. The third baseman led the Twins in hits last year. 

 

 

 

 

 

#290 Bob Allison

In 1959, Bob led the A.L. in triples and was named Rookie of the Year. 

 

 

 

 

 

#318 Twins Team Card

 

 

 

 

#341 Jim Roland

Jim attracted the Twins' scout when he pitched a no-hitter and struck out 25 batters in a semipro game. A high school sensation, the southpaw averaged better than 2 strikeouts per inning as a senior. 

 

 

 

  

#355 Vic Power 

Vic tied a big league record by stealing home twice in one game in '58. 

 

 

 

 

 

#369 Jerry Zimmerman

Nothing but stats! 

 

 

 

 

 

#386 Lenny Green 

Still need this card! 

 

 

 

 

 

#409 Bill Fischer

The Twins drafted Bill last winter. The righty set a major league record in 1962 when he pitched 84 1/3 innings without issuing a walk. 

 

 

 

 

 

#455 Bernie Allen

Bernie's bat really got hot late in the season in 1963, as he clubbed American League pitching at a .322 clip for the last month and a half. The righthanded batter set a Twins' record for second baseman in his rookie campaign when he smashed 12 homers. Bernie was a star quarterback for his college football club at Purdue.

 

 

  

#484 Bill Pleis 

Nothing but stats! 

 

 

 

 

 

#500 Camilo Pascual 

Camilo was the A.L. strikeout king for the 3rd consecutive year in '63. 

 

 

 

 

 

1964 Rookie Stars 

Jerry Arrigo - Jerry figures to be a key bullpen member of the Twins' staff in '64. The southpaw posted a 2.81 ERA with the Twins late last year. 

 

Dwight Siebler - Dwight broke in with Bakersfield in 1959 and won 11 ballgames. The righthander won two big ballgames with the Twins last September. 

 

  

#542 1964 Rookie Stars 

Bud Bloomfield - Bud has been in the minors since '57 when he played for Decatur. The righthanded-hitting infielder batted .287 with Tulsa in '62.
