PHIL CAVARRETTA Signed 3½x5½ photo, shown as a young player in Cubs uniform Photograph signed: "Phil Cavarretta" B/w, 3½x5½. Phil Cavarretta (1916-2000) played first base and outfield in Chicago for 21 years, 19 years with the Cubs (1935-1953) and two years with the White Sox (1954-1955). He led the National League in hits in 1944 (197) and was voted the league's Most Valuable Player in 1945, as his .355 batting average led the Cubs into the World Series (the most recent Cubs World Series appearance). A three-time All-Star, Cavaretta was the last surviving member of the pennant-winning Cubs teams of 1935 and 1938. He was player manager of the Cubs (1951-1953), and later coached in the Tigers, Yankees and Mets organizations. Cavarretta played in more games for the Cubs (1,953) except 19th century player Cap Anson. He was the last living player to have played against Babe Ruth (in 1935). Top right corner creased. Ink and pencil note (unknown hand) on verso. Signature lightly beaded, but legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
