Presented is a Riggs Stephenson signature on an original black and white action photograph of the former Chicago Cubs leftfielder swinging a bat with a stadium as the background. Stephenson has signed his name in black pen on his left leg in the photo, which depicts him in mid-swing wearing a Cubs uniform, another player with a bat behind him, and a stadium grandstand with some fans already filing in to their seats. The 10 x 13-inch photo is mounted on a 12 x 15-inch gray cardboard backing, which is inscribed “Stephenson” in black pen in the upper left corner. Stephenson played for the Cleveland Indians (1921 to 1925) and the Chicago Cubs (1926 to 1934). He has one of the highest lifetime batting averages of eligible 20th-century players not in the Hall of Fame, although his relatively short career (1,310 games, 4,508 at bats) was barely long enough to qualify for official recognition among the career leaders; other than Earle Combs and Shoeless Joe Jackson, every other 20th-century player with a .325 batting average exceeded 6,000 at bats. Stephenson's .336 career batting average, 22nd highest in Major League Baseball history, is also tied with that of Bill Madlock’s for the highest in Cubs team history. This item comes with a LOA from Beckett Authentication.
