Signed color Topps card of Zipfel at bat in Senators uniform
Sports card "Bud Zipfel" in blue ink. Color, 2½x3½. Topps card no. 69, with minor league stats from 1956 to 1961 and major league stats from 1961 to 1962 on back. Zipfel, born in 1938 in Belleville, Illinois, played two seasons of major league baseball with the Washington Senators from 1961 to 1962. These were the first two seasons of the third team to bear that name; they're now the Texas Rangers. Known as "Zipper the Ripper", Zipfel had a .220 batting average with 10 homeruns and 39 RBIs. His main claim to fame is hitting a game-winning home run in the 16-inning against the Baltimore Orioles on Sept. 12, 1962, in which pitcher Tom Cheney pitched all 16 innings. He tallied 21 Ks, striking out each Oriole at least once, in 228 pitches, establishing a new American League record for strikeouts in an extra inning game. Zipfel also singled in the Senator's other run in that game in the first. That's not the longest modern-era major-league game, by the way; that dubious honor goes to a 25-inning, eight-hour-six minute monster between the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers, which the Cubs won 7-6. Lightly toned and spotted, otherwise in fine condition.
