Vic Raschi was born in West Springfield, Massachusetts and
was known as "The Springfield rifle".
Signed by the New York Yankees as an amateur free agent in 1941. A 21 game winner for three consecutive years, 1949, 1950 & 1951.
Became a part of one of the most feared pitching rotations in baseball history when teamed with Ed Lopat and Allie Reynolds.
Vic was never featured in a Topps card as he had an exclusive contract with Bowman, in which he appeared through and including the 1955 year.
