1939 Philadelphia Phillies Team Sheet Signed by 23.

Lot 53. 1939 Philadelphia Phillies Team Sheet Signed by 23. By finishing last in the NL with a 45-106-1 record, this team helped manager “Doc” Prothro to compile what remains the worst career winning percentage among major league managers – .301 based on a 138-320 record. His son Tommy had more success as a football coach for Oregon State and UCLA; he is in the College Football Hall of Fame as a coach. One of Prothro’s coaches – Hans Lobert – is one of baseball’s more interesting individuals. In a playing career that spanned 1903-17 with five different NL teams, Lobert was known primarily for his speed. In 1913 at the Polo Grounds, he beat Jim Thorpe in a 100-yard dash. In 1908, he stole second base, third and home in the same inning. Before one game, he raced a racehorse around the bases. Lawrence Ritter recounted that event in his 1966 book “The Glory of Their Times.” In seven of eight seasons from 1907-14, he stole at least 30 bases, at least 40 four times, and as many as 47. In 1910, he stole 41 bases while appearing in only 93 games. A complete list of Phillies that signed the 8” x 11” team sheet follows. The sheet includes the 1939 Centennial of Baseball U.S. Postal Service stamp. The autographs are generally mint 9 or better: Morris Arnovich, Walter Beck, Jack Bolling, Gibby Brack (died 1960), Ray Bruner, Virgil Davis, Bud Hafey, Ray Harrell, Kirby Higbe, Roy Hughes, Syl Johnson, Bill Kirksieck, Hans Lobert, Herschel Martin, Leo Miller Walter Millies, Emmett Mueller, Hugh Mulcahy, Ike Pearson, Doc Prothro, George Scharein, Gus Suhr and Del Young. PSA/DNA Pre-Certified. Winning Bid $138.
