WILLIE MAYS and RALPH KINER
The two Hall of Famers are shown together in this color photograph.
Photograph signed: "Willie Mays" and "Ralph Kiner" in blue felt tip. Color 8x10. Considered by many the greatest all-around player of all time, Willie Mays (born in 1931) was the prototype of the complete player; he hit for average and power, ran the bases with intelligence and speed, played a spectacular centerfield, and possessed a great arm. He was also remarkably durable, playing in at least 150 games for 13 consecutive seasons. Mays was an All-Star in 1954-1973, he received the Most Valuable Player Award in 1954 and 1965 and the Gold Glove in 1957-68. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1979. On May 4, 1966, Mays passed Mel Ott's 19-year-old record of 511 National League home runs and finished his career with a total of 660 - the fourth highest total of all time. In a relatively brief 10-year career, which was shortened by a back ailment, Kiner (1922-2014) hit 369 home runs, winning or sharing the National League home run title in each of his first seven seasons in Pittsburgh. He topped 50 twice, with 51 in 1947 and 54 in 1949. His ratio of 7.1 home runs per 100 at-bats trails only Babe Ruth and Mark McGwire among retired players. Kiner averaged better than 100 RBI a season as he led the National League in slugging percentage three times. Since 1962, Kiner has been one of the New York Mets broadcasters. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1975. Fine condition.
