Printed Card signed in ink: "Ken Keltner". B/w, 3½x5½. Printed caption: "1948/Cleveland Indians/Ken Keltner/Veteran third baseman/had his greatest year, hit/.297, with 31 homers, 119 RBIs." Keltner (1916-1991) was a major league third baseman from 1937 to 1950, most of those years with the Cleveland Indians. He took 1945 off to enter the Navy. Keltner was a seven-time All-Star (1940-1944,1946, 1948) in part because of his powerful batting. He had three 20-home run seasons (1938, 1941, 1948), one 30 home-run season (1948) and two 100 RBI seasons (1938 and 1948). Keltner's three-run home run was the turning point in the tie-breaker playoff game against the Red Sox in 1948; the Indians went on to win the World Series that year. He wasn't a slouch in the fielding department, either. He helped to end Joe DiMaggio's 56-game hitting streak by stopping two plays on July 17, 1941 that would have been tallied as hits. Keltner had a career batting average of .276 with 163 home runs and 852 RBIs. Edges lightly toned. Top edge has minor creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
