HANK SAUR and ANDY PAFKO Cubs Saur and Braves Pafko have meeting on the field Photograph signed: "Hank Saur" and "Andy Pafko". B/w 5x7, full length photograph of a field meeting of three. Hank Sauer (1917-2001), who entered the Major Leagues in 1941 and retired in 1959, had his best seasons in the Cubs' Wrigley Field. He was the NL's Most Valuable Player in 1952, leading the league in RBI's (121) and tying for the lead in homers (37). He was an All-Star in 1950 and 1952. 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. Pinhead-size negative/printing flaws at upper center of photo. Otherwise, fine condition. Previously authenticated by JSA.
