Photograph signed: "Joe/Medwick", "Chick Hafey". Color, 3½x3½. Outfielder Charles J. "CHICK" HAFEY (1903-1973) was an excellent outfielder for the Cardinals and Reds and an outstanding hitter despite the handicaps of weak eyes and poor health. When failing vision threatened his career in 1929, he resorted to eyeglasses and continued his .300 pace, leading the National League with a .349 average in 1931. He put together six straight years batting .329 or better and compiled a .317 career mark. He played in four World Series with the St Louis Cardinals, including the World Championships of 1926 and 1931. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1971. JOE MEDWICK (1911-1975), known to fans as Ducky (but not to his face) and to teammates as Muscles, joined Hafey on the colorful "Gas House Gang" Cardinals in 1932. A ten-time All-Star left fielder, starting with the second All-Star Game in 1934, he was National League MVP in 1937, the most recent NL player to win the Triple Crown (most homers, most RBIs and highest batting average). In 1936, he set a still standing record of 64 doubles in a season. Medwick was on the Cardinals' 1934 World Championship team, and played in another World Series with the Dodgers (their 1941 loss to the Yankees). He entered the Hall of Fame in 1968. The backdrop of this picture suggests that it was taken in Cooperstown, New York, and it was probably taken during Hafey's enshrinement in 1971. The Hall's records show that Joe Medwick, already a member, attended the ceremony that year. Surface damage near top edge. Lightly toned. Signature lightly beaded but legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
