Lot 285. 1951 St. Louis Browns Yearbook Signed by Ned Garver and 3 More Garver Signatures. The 1951 season was Garver’s best.

In addition, he was good enough with a bat to hit sixth in the order. Since 1920, he is the only pitcher to win 20 or more games and post a winning record for a team that lost 100 or more games in a season. Garver signed the cover of the 48-page yearbook, the Browns’ first since 1944. He also autographed the page inside devoted to him. The yearbook is vg+ to ex. Garver’s autograph is also on a Certificate of Authenticity related to a baseball and 1953 Topps card #112. The autographs are mint 9 or gem mint 10 and have been authenticated by Kevin Keating.
