1962 Topps - Johnny Romano #330 (Catcher) - Autographed Baseball Card (Cleveland Indians)

John Anthony Romano Jr. (b: August 23, 1934 in Hoboken, New Jersey) is a former MLB catcher who played for the Chicago White Sox (1958–59, 1965–66), Cleveland Indians (1960–64) and St. Louis Cardinals (1967). He was considered one of the top catchers in the American League during the early 1960’s.

Playing as a backup to Sherm Lollar in 1959, Romano hit .294 with 5 home runs and 25 RBI in 53 games, as the Go-Go White Sox won their first American League Pennant in 40 years.

He was traded to the Cleveland Indians on December 6, 1959, and replaced Russ Nixon as the Indians starting catcher. He was traded back to the White Sox on January 20, 1965, as the White Sox sought more offensive production from the catcher’s position. He had a productive season in 1965 with the White Sox, hitting 18 home runs with a respectable .355 on-base percentage in cavernous Comiskey Park.

Career statistics:
Batting average – .255
Home runs – 129
RBI – 417
