Card signed by the major league outfielder in blue ink
Signature: "Tommy Holmes", 5x3. Holmes (1917-2008, born Thomas Francis Holmes in Brooklyn, New York) was a major league outfielder who spent most of his 11-season career with the Boston Braves (now the Atlanta Braves). He hit safely in a 20th-century NL record 37 straight games, from June 6 through July 8 of 1945, when he came in second in the MVP vote. That year, he hit .352 with 117 RBI, 125 runs, and 15 stolen bases, and had league highs of 47 doubles, 224 hits, a .577 slugging average, and 28 HR. He is the only player ever to lead a league in home runs and fewest strikeouts (9) in the same season. Appointed the Braves' manager in mid-1951, Holmes was fired early in 1952. When Pete Rose broke his hitting-streak record in 1978, a tearful Holmes thanked him "for making people remember me." Fine condition.
