Perhaps one of the fastest catchers in baseball, Schalk is one of the few players in Cooperstown voted in for his fielding and handling of pitchers. A lifetime .253 hitter, he stole bases with ease and caught four no-hitters. This Paul Thompson 5 X 7 captures the man in a classic baseball pose, catchers mitt and all. The hardnosed backstop survived the Black Sox Scandal of 1919. Paul Thompson photo credits are on the reverse. Overall EX, with a small amount of chipping in the upper right corner.
