Gus and Billy

I was able to check off another item from the Billy Williams master list.

This is from the 1962 Topps stamps inserts.  I already have the single stamp of Billy, but the master lists includes both the single stamp and the two-stamp panel.  The panel is what was actually included in the wax packs.

Billy was paired with Orioles catcher Gus Triandos.  At the time, Gus was the bigger name of the two.  He was coming off of All-Star appearances in 1957 - 1959.  The slugging backstop was at the peak of his career.  Billy was just a kid coming who won the Rookie of the Year in 1961.

The panel puts me at 75 out of 127 on the list, 59%.
