Got this in the mail yesterday, one of the many presents my wife got me for my birthday:
Elmer played from 1914 to 1925, for mainly the Indians, although he did play for the Senators, Yankees, Red Sox and Reds. He helped the Indians win the 1920 World Series and the Yankees win the 1922 American League Pennant and 1923 World Series. Smith’s grand slam in Game 5 of the 1920 series was the first inWorld Series history. Which is just proof that every player holds a record.
As you can see his career stats were not Hall of Fame worthy but, it’s always fun to get an autograph of a pre 1920s guy. This is from the 2011 Legendary Cuts release, one card per box and they are still charging over $200 for the box. Have to say this card isn’t worth $200, but it’s still a great autograph to own.
What is the oldest player’s autograph you have?
