1951 Ned Garver Day Broadside
When Ned Garver won his 20th game on the last day of the 1951 season for the lowly St. Louis Browns in 1951, he became the first pitcher in Major League history to win 20 games for a team which lost 100. One of the most durable pitchers of his era, the right-handed Garver led the American League in complete games in 1950 and 1951 and recorded 129 victories in his 14-year career while playing for some of baseball’s worst teams in the late 1940s and 1950s. From the "Ned Garver Day" festivities comes this scarce 18X27" framed broadside advertisement. Dark wood frame holds poster welcoming home the "Ace Pitcher of the St. Louis Browns." Appears to be EX MT.
