Gypsy Queen – Vada Pinson

My first exposure to Vada Pinson was on a 1982 Donruss card, depicting him as a coach for the Chicago White Sox. Pinson had a very solid career starting with the Reds in 1958. By the time he put the bat down, he had collected 2757 hits, an amazing feat. Not amazing enough to put him in Cooperstown, evidently. He spent fifteen years on the ballot, but the most support he ever received was 15.7% in 1988.
