Sale Price $90.00
Index card signature of the Cubs' 3-time 20-game winner.
Signature: "L Warneke", 3x5 card. Lon Warneke (1909-1976), "the Arkansas Hummingbird," won 192 Major League games while losing only 121. He reached the Majors in 1930, and ended his career during World War II. The best of Warneke's many fine seasons with the Chicago Cubs was 1932, when he led the National League in ERA, wins, winning percentage and shutouts. His 22-6 record was the first of three 20-win seasons. He appeared in two World Series for the Cubs (1932, 1935), and it was not his fault the Cubs lost the latter Series to the Tigers. (Warneke allowed only one Tiger run in seventeen innings, winning both games in which he appeared.) He played in the first All-Star Game (1933) and in 4 more. After his playing days Warneke became an umpire in the Pacific Coast League and National League and - appropriately - an Arkansas judge. Lightly toned around edges. Ink stamp on verso. Otherwise, fine condition. .
