3x5½ image in Cubs uniform, kneeling with his bat
Photograph signed: "Best Always/Rick Monday". B/w, 3¼x5½. Monday, the first player ever taken in the draft, had a long, solid career but had chronic back problems and never achieved at the level first expected of him. A centerfielder until his injury, Monday was a good fielder with an accurate arm; he led NL outfielders in fielding in 1972 and twice led his league in outfield double plays. He hit 16 leadoff home runs lifetime. He hit into only 71 double plays in his career, an excellent average of one every 86.4 at-bats. Monday earned national celebrity with the Cubs in April 1976 when he dashed from his position in centerfield and snatched an American flag from a fan that was about to burn it. Since leaving the field Monday has been a broadcaster for the Dodgers and Padres. Surface nick at upper left edge. Lightly soiled at left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
