Gus Suhr


The short bio from the Helmar-R319 card back: Many consider “Gus” to be the best first baseman in the National League. He’s a great fielder and is always at or near the top in all the important fielding statistics. At bat he is also a fan favorite. So far he’s knocked in more than 100 runs a season three times. His best was 118, which he did in 1936. Gus loves to try to make that extra base; he usually ends up with a dozen or more triples each season. Born January 3, 1906 in San Francisco, he played five seasons with the Seals in the Pacific Coast League before moving west to Pittsburgh. He stands at six foot and weighs 180 pounds.
