Default Red Sox Photos Identification Help

Hi-

I have a group of photos of Red Sox players that I cannot identify that I want to add to my player collection. I am really bad at matching names to faces. Can anyone please help with the photos scanned below? Most are from the 1950s. I can provide better scans if needed. Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

Alan

The first one is Tom Herrin, from the 1954 Picture Pack

#7 is Dick Gernert, as seen on his 1952 Topps card, NOT Leo Kiely

The rest of the players SPEC listed I think checks out.

Thank you both! I really appreciate all of the information! I am excited to add these to my Red Sox collection as I collect one image of each player who played for the Sox. My preference is photos but I take anything I can get. I am going very slowly (I think I have roughly 1/3 of the players) but it is a fun side collection for me that usually doesn't cost much to add to compared to some of my other collections.

Alan

You pitched a strong game, I just came in in the 9th and closed it for you

Gernert jumped right out for me because I have both his 1952 Topps card and the 2010 Topps Lineage autograph version, so that exact picture is familiar to me, haha.

I didn't know who Herrin was either, looks like he only pitched 14 games in 1954, but was promoted highly enough as a rookie in Spring Training to get his own picture pack card. I'm versed enough in Red Sox uniform styles that with some picture research I was able to determine his hat came from a 2-3 year span in the mid-50s, so it was a matter of looking through the database of picture pack photos from those years to find the exact Herrin picture pack card.
