    Description

    Billy Southworth Signed Index Card. Southworth debuted in the majors in 1913 for the Indians, and in a 13 season career batted .297 with 52 home runs, 561 runs batted in, and 138 stolen bases.
    As a manager, he was very successful; his .597 winning percentage is second all-time to Joe McCarthy's .615. Southworth's major league managerial won-loss record was 1,044-704 with four first-place finishes, and he won two World Series titles (1942, 1944) as manager of the St. Louis Cardinals. Southworth also won one World Series as a player (1926, also with the Cards). Southworth was the first to win the World Series as a player and again as a manager.
    Billy passed away in 1969 and was recently elected into the Hall of Fame in 2008. This has created a strong demand for this scarce signature. We offer a beautiful example with the notation Boston Braves 1950.

    I thought that Peter Calderon was very pleasant and had a very professional attitude.
