Larry Doby was a upper-level All Star who was the best AL CFer between DiMaggio and Mantle.

The term "superstar" was coined by Andy Warhol as a phrase for actors in the films he produced. It was an ironic tag given to thespians who had never appeared in Hollywood films or Broadway plays. "Superstar" is a phrase of the 70's that isn't relevant until then although it is often applied in retrospect.
