LUKE APPLING “Old Aches and Pains” signed this official Rawlings American League Baseball in blue ink Baseball signed: "Luke Appling". Rawlings Official American League Baseball. Luke Appling (1907-1991), nicknamed "Old Aches and Pains" due to his constant complaining to teammates about minor injuries, retired with a lifetime batting average of .310, hitting .388 in 1936, the highest ever for a shortstop. Appling spent his entire career (1930-1950) with the Chicago White Sox, missing only the 1944 season due to his service in the military. He came back to continue playing in 1945 and in 1949, at age 42, he was the oldest every-day shortstop in baseball history. In 1967, Appling served as interim manager for the Kansas City Athletics. At the Cracker Jack All-Star Oldtimers' Game in 1984, the 75-year-old Appling hit a home run into the seats against 63-year-old Warren Spahn. Both are Hall of Famers. Toned. Minor scuff marks. Otherwise, fine condition.
