Matted in the Gallery of History style to a total size of 12x14. Photograph signed: "Johnny Sain". Sepia, 8x10. "Spahn and Sain and pray for rain" was the Braves' motto for the 1948 stretch drive, as they pushed toward their first pennant since 1914. Johnny Sain (1917-2008) led the N.L. with 24 wins, 39 starts, 28 complete games, and 314 innings. He won 20 each year from 1946 to 1948, slumped in 1949, but came back with a 20-13 mark in 1950. In three of his 20-win seasons, he led the league in hits allowed. Sent to the Yankees in August 1951, he contributed 11-6 and 14-7 marks to the 1952 and '53 Yankee pennants, then led the A.L. with 22 saves in 1954. After his stellar pitching career, he became a coach for several teams intermittently from 1959 to 1986. In 28 MLB seasons, Sain earned 3 All-Star selections and 6 World Series championships. Fine condition. Matted in the Gallery of History style.
