JOHNNY SAINSmall 3¼x5¼ signed b/w photo of All-Star Johnny Sain in Kansas City Athletics colors. The Athletics were the last team that Sain played with, and he was later a pitching coach for them. Photograph signed "John Sain" in blue ink. Black ink marks on verso. B/w, 3¼x5¼ overall, 3x4½ image, one surface, printed on cardstock. Sain spent part of 1955, his last year in the bigs, with the Kansas City Athletics. He was later a pitching coach for them. "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. That year, Sain (1917-2006, born John Franklin Sain in Havana, Arkansas) led the NL with 24 wins, 39 starts, 28 complete games and 314 innings. He won 20 games 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, Sain 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 1953 Yankee pennants, then led the AL with 22 saves in 1954. An excellent-hitting pitcher (.245), Sain averaged .346 in 1947 and .353 in 1954, and he led the NL with 16 sacrifice hits in 1948. Lightly bowed and rippled. Otherwise in fine condition.
