Photograph Signed: "Cha. Gehringer" and "Hank Greenberg" in blue ink. B/w, 10x8 overall, 9½x7½ image, one surface. Blue and black ink notations in unknown hand and PSA/DNA authentication label on verso. Gehringer and Greenberg were both members of the Detroit Tigers in 1930 and from 1933 to 1941, when Greenberg left the team to fight in World War II. Their time together included three runs at the World Series, including their championship season in 1935. MLB Hall of Famer CHARLIE GEHRINGER (1903-1993) was the American League MVP in 1937. He had 200 or more hits seven times, hit at least .300 fourteen times, and had at least 100 RBI seven times. Gehringer hit .320 lifetime and .321 in twenty World Series games. One of baseball's most reliable second basemen and a very dependable hitter, the reserved Gehringer was called "The Mechanical Man". He spent his entire 19-season career with the Detroit Tigers (1924-1942) and earned six straight All-Star selections from 1933 to 1938. Eight years after his retirement, the Detroit Tigers hired Gehringer to be the team's general manager. He remained with the organization in various positions throughout the 1950s. Despite losing four prime seasons to World War II and another to a fractured wrist, HANK GREENBERG (1911-1986)hit an impressive 331 career home runs. His best year was 1938, when the slugging right-hander hit 58 homers, then second only to Babe Ruth among American Leaguers. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1956. Lightly toned, cracked, creased and bowed. Gehringer's signature has low contrast, but remains legible. Errors from negative and developing have been reproduced in photo. Otherwise, fine condition.
