1952 Red Sox Baseball Promotional Photo — Hoot Evers, Starting Left Fielder

Black & White Printed Photo w/Mechanical Autograph

After playing only one game for the Tigers in 1952, Evers was part of a blockbuster trade on June 3, 1952, that sent George Kell, Johnny Lipon, Dizzy Trout, and Evers to the Boston Red Sox. With Ted Williams serving in the military, Evers became the Red Sox starting left fielder in 1952, and he hit .262 with 59 RBIs. A broken finger in 1952 reportedly hampered Evers' grip, and he never regained his stroke. Evers played four more major league seasons from 1953 to 1956, but he did not hit above .251 or collect more than 39 RBIs. In 1,142 career games, Evers batted .278 with 98 home runs, 555 runs, 565 RBIs, and 1,055 hits. He compiled a .983 fielding percentage at all three outfield positions. Signature is mechanically reprodued. Measures 6" wide x 9" tall.

No rips, no stains, no writing, no damage.
