Signed on his image on a 12x9½ vintage photo of the Washington Senators
Photograph signed: "Mickey Vernon". B/w, 12x9½. A four-decade player (1939-1960), the consistent, hardy Mickey Vernon (1918-2008) set the major league record for most games played at first base (2,237). He set the AL mark for most lifetime assists (1,444) and collected 2,495 lifetime hits, an average of more than one per game. Vernon won the American League batting crown twice (1946, 1953). He led the AL in doubles in 1946, 1953 and 1954, and drove in 80 or more runs 11 times, with a high of 115 in 1953. The five-time All-Star played for five teams, but mostly for the Washington Senators. (He was President Eisenhower's favorite player.) Vernon later managed the Senators (1961-1963). He lived long enough to throw out a first pitch on Opening Day when Major League Baseball returned to Washington, D.C. in 2007. Toned. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
