Joe Sewell Portrait Photo

Joe Sewell Portrait Photo

Joe Sewell was the toughest hitter to strike out in the history of major league baseball. During his 11 seasons with the Indians and 3 with the Yankees, in 7,132 at-bats, he fanned a miniscule 114 times for a rate of one strikeout per 63 at-bats. In 1932 he set a record that still stands: he struck out only 3 times the entire season! Cleveland called him up from the minors in 1920 and he batted .329 down the stretch to help the Indians to a pennant. Sewell held the record for most consecutive games played (1,103) until Lou Gehrig bested the mark en route to his celebrated streak of 2,130 straight games played. Masterful shot (3-1/4 X 4-1/4”) of this Chief of Indians. He is posed in uniform, glove on his knee, with a big smile. Background shows a slightly blurred vision of a seated player and a sparsely populated stands. Pic is EX-MT. Partially obscured stamp on the verso, of Culver Photographers.
