ANDY PAFKO and JOE ADCOCK
Two World Champion Milwaukee Braves sign a program for the 1985 Milwaukee Sports Collectors Convention.
Program signed: "Andy Pafko" and "Joe Adcock" in blue felt tip, 15 pages, 6x9. Program for the 1985 Milwaukee Sports Collectors Convention. Five-time National League All-Star Andy Pafko (1921-2013) played for three teams (Chicago Cubs, Brooklyn Dodgers and Milwaukee Braves) in his 17-year NL career, and was on a pennant-winning team in each city. Primarily a centerfielder, he played a season at 3B for the Cubs, becoming one of the few players to make the All-Star team at both IF and OF positions. Pafko played on the last Cubs team to make it to the World Series (1945) and on the Milwaukee Braves' only World Championship team (1957). He made a famous blooper in 1949 with the Cubs. While arguing with umpire Al Barlick about whether he had caught or trapped a fly ball, Pafko forgot to call time out while Cardinal batter Rocky Nelson circled the bases, entering baseball legend for allowing an "inside the glove" home run. Although he was played out of position, platooned and frequently injured, Joe Adcock (1927-1999) retired as the twentieth most prolific home run hitter of all time and seventh among right-handed hitters with 337. A natural first baseman, the 6'4", 220-lb slugger joined the Reds in 1950, then switched to left field to keep both bats in the lineup. Traded to the Braves in 1953, he returned to first base and appeared in a career-high 157 games. On July 31, 1954 he hit four home runs in a game against the Brooklyn Dodgers. Fine condition.
