Looking up Giants WS games. Here's game 2 of 1923:

Dave Bancroft
Casey Stengel (!)
Babe Ruth
Herb Pennock

Okay, so no record there.

Bill James attributes Frankie Frisch's tenure on the Veterans Committee to the glut of Giants and Cardinals teammates who were elected. He was very loyal.

Need the following 1953 Topps #'s in EX/MT
72,81,88,95,242,243,245,248,251,252, 255,257,258,259,260,266,276,277,278, & 280
