LOU BROCK Signed envelope celebrating the day he became the all-time stolen base leader Commemorative Envelope signed: "Lou Brock", 6½x3½. Cachet picturing Brock in Cardinals uniform celebrates the day he stole his 893rd base, then the all-time Major League record. Postmarked San Diego, California, August 29, 1977 (the place and date of this achievement), 13-cent US flag stamp affixed. Outfielder Lou Brock spent 20 years in the Majors, the last 16 with the St Louis Cardinals. (The transaction that sent him from the Chicago Cubs to the arch-rival Cardinals in 1964 makes most lists of all-time one-sided trades.) A 7-time All-Star, Brock was baseball's all-time leader in stolen bases until 1982, with 938. (He remains the all-time National League leader.) He set a major league record by stealing over 50 bases 12 times and a N.L. record with 118 steals in 1974. Brock led the N.L. in stolen bases 8 times. He collected 3,023 hits during his 19-year career and holds the World Series record with a .391 batting average in 21 post-season games for the Cardinals. Brock entered the Hall of Fame in 1985. Lightly toned at lower edge. Edges lightly chipped. Adhesive residue (previous mounting) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition. Previously authenticated by JSA.
