Check Endorsed "Robin Roberts", 6x2½. Deerfield, Massachusetts, 1987 June 5. Check #6818, drawn on the joint account G. Richard and Joan M. McKelvey at Bank of New England - West, payable to Robin Roberts for $2.00. A hard-nosed competitor, ROBIN ROBERTS (1926-2010) ranks as the most winning right-hander in Phillies history. In his first full season, Roberts won 15 games. In 1950, he helped pitch the Phillies to their first pennant in 35 years, going 20-11. When he won his 20th on the final day of the season at Brooklyn, in a pennant-deciding, 10-inning game, he became the Phillies' first 20-game-winner since Grover Alexander in 1917. He was an All Star 1950-1956 and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1976. G. RICHARD McKELVEY, teacher and baseball coach at Deerfield Academy, wrote several books about baseball history.
