Printed Card Signed in Ink: "Al Epperly" in black ink. 5x3. Al Epperly (1918-2003) was a professional baseball player who was signed as an amateur free agent by the Boston Red Sox before the 1936 season without knowing he will still be in the game of baseball seventeen seasons later. Epperly was assigned to the Eau Claire Bears of the class D Northern League and in his first season in the pros, he finished at 13-8 with a 4.41 ERA while pitching 196 innings and helping his team to the play-off Championship; this was the first of eight double-digit winning seasons during his 17-year run. Twelve years later he took the mound in a major league ballpark again, and appeared in five games with no decisions out of the Brooklyn Dodgers bullpen in 1950. This wound up his big league numbers at 2-0 and 4.00 ERA while appearing in 14 games. During the 1940s and 1950s he had success at the AAA level before and after serving in the Army during World War II in 1944 and 1945. He went 16-5 for San Francisco Seals of the Pacific Coast league in 1943 and was selected by the Chicago White Sox in that November's Rule V Draft. Al also went 15-4 for the St. Paul Saints of the American Association in 1951 and finished out his playing career in the early fifties having won 160 games while losing 127 with a 3.62 ERA. Al also pitched during the winters in Cuba and retired in Davenport, Iowa, where for many years he served as chief deputy and captain of the postal division for the county sheriff's office. Two b/w baseball cachets printed on it (on upper left side is a man in uniform up at bat and on lower right side is a baseball bat and ball). Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
