Lot 260. Dick Kerr Autograph – Chicago’s Honest Pitcher in the 1919 World Series. Despite the best efforts of four starters to make sure the White Sox lost, Kerr pitched the team to two victories in the 1919 World Series against the Cincinnati Reds. He started and won Games 3 and 6. Two other White Sox starters, Eddie Cicotte and Lefty Williams, handed a total of five games to the Reds in the eight-game series. Kerr’s signature, authenticated by Kevin Keating, is nm-m 8 on a lined index card personalized to Bert Sugar. Kerr was 13-7 with the Sox in 1919, and he won 20 games in 1920 and 19 in 1921. After 1921, his playing career was effectively over. Later, he managed in the minors, and he is credited with switching future Hall of Fame great Stan Musial from pitching to playing the outfield.
