William Harridge
(b. October 16, 1883 - d. April 9, 1971)
AL President from 1931 until 1959, William Harridge stayed out of the limelight and quietly led the league from the era of Babe Ruth to the era of Mickey Mantle. An early supporter of the All-Star Game and night baseball, Harridge was a tough, conservative executive who insisted on order.
Inducted in 1972

Comments: I'm not aware of another card for Harridge besides the 1956 Topps issue. In August, 2003 I won an eBay auction for a PSA 6. In February, 2005 I upgraded to a GAI 7 purchased at the TriStar show in San Francisco, CA. In July, 2010 I found this beautiful SGC 88 card and won the eBay auction from seller Charlie Barokas (manontherock).
