The Charles "Gabby" Street Collection

The following nine lots derive from the personal collection of Charles "Gabby" Street, whose long career as a player, a manager and a radio broadcaster made him a staple in Big League ballparks for over four decades. Widely credited with developing a young Walter Johnson into the game's most effective pitcher as the Big Train's Washington Senators catcher during Johnson's earliest seasons, Street would gain even greater notoriety as manager of the early 1930's St. Louis Cardinals, who would win two National League pennants and a World Championship under his guidance. All pieces derive directly from the Street family with their letter of provenance.
